Excellent, thoughtful preaching is a hallmark of the Cathedral’s liturgical life.

We believe very strongly in the word of God as dynamic and engaging—a word meant to transform us in profound ways. Reading sermons, praying or meditating with them, sharing and talking about them can all be ways of deepening your faith.

The Cathedral’s preachers include its regular clergy and also lay people and occasional visitors. Here, you will find links to sermons preached throughout the liturgical year. You can read texts of sermons, listen to them, or do both at once.
