  • 20152016

    Welcome to our 44th season of concerts at St. Marks Cathedral

    Im delighted to extend my warmest welcome to you on behalf of St. Marks Episcopal Cathedral, located on Loring Park in the heart of Minneapolis arts and culture district.

    Were honored by your presence and pray your experience here be both exhilarating and edifying. Cathedrals have long provided a central gathering place for the communities in which they live and serve thin places in which the holiness of all life can be discovered and celebrated. And while Cathedrals provide leadership in addressing the concrete needs of a hurting and hungry world, were also called to provide for the holy hungers of the heartthe search for beauty, inspiration, and ecstasy.

    So youre now invited to be fed and to become food, nourishing your community from the riches you encounter here.

    Welcome and enjoy!

    The Very Rev. Paul J. Lebens-Englund

    Dean, St. Marks Cathedral
