A Word of Welcome

Presiding Bishop-Elect Michael Curry

The full allotment of tickets for the Feb. 20 Absalom Jones celebration at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul, Detroit has been distributed. Although no more seating remains, you can still add your name to a waiting list should additional seating open up.

Please contact Jennifer Michalak at (313) 833-4414 to put your name on the list. Be sure to leave your name, phone number and the number of tickets you would like request.

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry will be the special guest for the day, as he will preside at the celebration, which starts at 1 p.m. Earlier in the day, a clergy-only question-and-answer session with Curry will take place at 11 a.m. Participants in the service only will vest and have a place in the procession. Bishop Gibbs will preside. After the service, a brief reception will be held in Barth Hall.

Curry will also preach on Sunday, Feb. 21 at Christ Church Cranbrook, Bloomfield Hills.


To be an extraordinary spiritual gathering place where people of all backgrounds and ages are welcome to question and learn, pray, worship and serve; being loved by God in ways that change and improve their lives and the lives of others.


We hope you find what you are looking for: an exciting ministry, a place for spiritual growth, directions, service or event times, more information about who we are, what we do, something about our approach to Christianity, or a place to simply be. Most of all we hope you find your experience here an invitation to join us — for an event, for a return to this website, or for a lifetime.

God’s grace and peace,


The Very Reverend Scott Hunter, Dean
