On Sunday, December 22, 2013, the traditional service of Readings and Carols was presented by our youth choirs, youth readers, and youth servers.

Father Ryan presides at the service, which alternates readings from scripture with congregational hymns and choral pieces for the Christmas season.

The twelve dedication candles at the Cathedral's entrances were lit in celebration of the Cathedral's 106th birthday. The Cathedral was dedicated on December 22, 1907.

The Schola Cantorum, under the direction of Stacey Sunde, Director of Youth Music.
