Sunday 13th September Morning Worship
We welcome you to join us in person at 11am for Morning Worship on Sunday 13th September, as live services continue at the cathedral. We have a special welcome to those who are moving or returning to Belfast as students or for work in these challenging times.
The service for the 14th Sunday after Trinity, and Vocations Sunday, will be led by the Dean, the Very Reverend Stephen Forde, and the Preacher is Mrs Gillian McGaughey, Diocesan Reader.
The Organist is Jack Wilson and the Belfast Cathedral Choir is conducted by the Director of Music, Matthew Owens.
The Canticle "Jubilate" is a setting by Philip Stopford (former Director of Music in Belfast Cathedral) and the anthem is "View me, Lord" by Richard Lloyd. Voluntaries are "The Canticle of the Rose, IV – God the Son" and "The Canticle of the Rose, VI – God the Spirit" both by Alan Ridout.
On this Vocations Sunday you may also wish to view the video issued by the Church of Ireland to encourage people from every walk of life to consider a call to Ordained Ministry. Please click on the link below:
Following the most recent guidance issued by the Northern Ireland Executive, and endorsed by the Church Leaders, all attending are to wear face coverings as they arrive and leave the cathedral, at times when social distancing will be difficult. During the service, while seated at 2 metre distance, members of the congregation are encouraged to wear face coverings.
Please note that seating will be allocated from the front as parishioners arrive. And at the end of the service, after the organ voluntary, the congregation will be guided to leave from the back seats to those at the front. Those who belong to the same household will be able to sit together. However those from different households will be asked to sit separately. At present the cathedral has seating for 100 worshippers.
Whether you are a regular member of the cathedral congregation or a visitor to our city, we welcome you to join us as we share together in prayer, scriptures, reflection and cathedral music.
For those still unable to join us in person, there will be a Live Stream of the service starting at 10.50am. Please click on Facebook "F" icon at the bottom of this webpage, or on the link immediately below for access.
A recording of the service will be placed on the telephone audio facility (028 95 320355) later in the day.
