The Cathedral Choir will be accompanied by organist Diane Van Den Oever. Oboist Jeffrey Paul and the Dakota String Quartet will also be part of the program. Nine readings foretelling the birth of Christ are interspersed with the music. Calvary is an accessible venue.
There is no cost to attend, just a free-will offering for music expenses.
Calvary has been working for some time to build a columbarium, which is a structure for the inurnment of cremains (human ashes). The 63-niche unit is finished. We anticipate dedicating the chapel later this spring. Bishop Folts has determined the chapel will be named the Charlotte Augusta Memorial Chapel, or St. Augusta's for short. This is in honor of Charlotte Augusta Astor, for whom the original funds to build the cathedral were given. If you are interested in learning more about our columbarium, contact Deb Husby at email@example.com
