Veterans’ Day Service

Sunday, November 11, 4:00 p.m., Cathedral Church of St. Paul, Detroit. Every year, your cathedral hosts a Veterans’ Day service to prayerfully honor both military and first responders. This year, the service falls on the 100th anniversary of the Armistice that ended World War I. From the solemn procession with bagpipes and organ through the bugler’s playing of Taps and Last Post, the service pays tribute to all who have served our country and offers hope and healing for those who have lost loved ones in the line of duty. A reception with light refreshments will follow the service. There is gated, lighted parking at the cathedral (enter from Warren Ave.). The cathedral is located at 4800 Woodward Avenue at the corner of Warren Avenue in Midtown, Detroit.

St. James Day

Sunday, November 18. We will celebrate St. James—the person and the church. We will learn all about our patronal saint while giving thanks for all that our church means to us, and we will commit to the future of this place with our 2019 pledges. The service will be fun and festive. Between services J2A and Rite-13 classes will host a feast fitting our beloved St. James, for whom the Camino de Santiago Pilgrimage is dedicated. The Way of James will help us reflect on the identity of our parish and our Christian lives. Come be refreshed from your “earthly pilgrimage,” your daily life and work, with Communion and a pilgrim’s breakfast on this Sunday. All will be fed for their journeys.
