The Fellowship Breakfast
The Fellowship Breakfast is an outreach ministry centered on the 8:15 a.m. Sunday service at the Cathedral. This ministry seeks to recognize the economically diverse neighborhood that the Cathedral serves, sharing the Good News with all people. Following the 8:15 a.m. service, there is a breakfast meal in the Cathedral's parish hall. All are served, regardless of their ability to pay. After breakfast, Christian education is offered beginning at approximately 9:30 a.m., and is coordinated by the Cathedral's Director of Religious Education Kit Ilardi.
The Fellowship Breakfast is funded by the Cathedral Vestry, augmented by Fund-raisers and direct contributions. We seek volunteers to participate in the program and gratefully accepts donations for its continuation. Some of the food is provided by Gleaners, a Detroit-area food bank, and by Avalon International Breads, our good neighbor in Detroit's Midtown.

Greeters are the public face of the Cathedral for its many visitors. They are responsible for maintaining a welcoming presence on Sunday mornings before and after services to all newcomers, encouraging them to sign the guest books, take part in the services, and join the Cathedral family for fellowship during the breakfast and coffee hours.
The Hospitality Committee is charged with making all who visit the Cathedral welcome. This includes greeting visitors, helping them feel comfortable in the service (particularly if they are not Episcopalian or are unfamiliar with the Cathedral’s worship), encouraging them to sign the guest books so that they may be contacted and thanked for their visit, and inviting them to join and meet the parish family at the breakfast or coffee hour following the Sunday services.
Tours of the Cathedral are offered on the second Sunday of each month following the 11:00 a.m. service. Weekday tours may be arranged by calling the Cathedral office at 831-5000. The Cathedral is open Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. -2:00 p.m. for self guided tours.
In conjunction with UCCA/Midtown Detroit Inc, the Cathedral is a participant in the Annual Noel Night Festivities taking place the first Saturday evening in December. Volunteers greet thousands of visitors to the Cathedral each year.
