Welcome to St. John's Cathedral in Quincy, Illinois
We are excited to greet you at our Anglican church in Quincy IL with the warmth and love of Christ. We are a community of Catholic Christians living a common life of prayer in the Anglican Tradition. We invite you to share in our community’s experience of life in Christ through prayerful worship, the Bible, and Holy Sacrament.
Sunday Service Times
7:15am....Morning Prayer The Daily Office is an ancient practice that uses daily prayers to mark the times of the day. For traditional Anglicans, this generally comes in the form of the two main offices of Daily Morning Prayer and Daily Evening Prayer. They may be prayed communally or individually. As with any day, we begin the Day of the Lord with Morning Prayer.
7:30am....Low Mass This is a simple spoken Mass that does not include any organ, choir, or hymns. As a quieter service, attendees benefit from a contemplative worship setting.
9:00am ....Catechesis of the Good Shepherd ** The signature of our Christian Education is The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. This is our Sunday School ministry for children ages 2 thru 12. Yet it’s much more than a Sunday School program. It is the meeting ground of two mysteries: The Mystery of God and the mystery of the Child. It is an approach to the religious formation of children. Rooted in the Bible, the liturgy of the church, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori. Children gather in an "atrium," a room prepared for them, which contains simple yet beautiful materials that they use.
9:00am....Adult Formation & Teen Formation ** In the tradition of discipleship and formation, adult & teen classes covering series of topics are taught with ample opportunity for questions and discussion provided.
10:00am....Choral Mass Unlike the simple spoken Mass at 7:30am, this 10:00am liturgy is a Choral Mass. As such, parts of the liturgy are chanted and you will hear the organ at several points throughout the liturgy, and hymns are corporately sung. Occasionally, incense is used.
** Currently in summer recess. Resumes with Rally Day (September 10th)
