Pride Sunday Service at National Cathedral

June 12 @ 11:15 am - 12:30 pm

Pride Mass Kim JacksonThe Rev. Senator Kim Jackson preaches on Pride Sunday.

Kim Jackson serves as Senator for Georgia State Senate District 41, representing portions of Dekalb and Gwinnett counties. Kim works every day to build a safer, fairer, and more prosperous Georgia, and brings the diverse voices of her district to the Capitol: immigrants, refugees, and people living on the margins.

An Episcopal priest from the rural South, Kim made Georgia home over a decade ago. After graduating from Furman University, Kim volunteered as an EMT and led her colleagues at Emory’s Candler School of Theology to advocate for Criminal Justice Reform in Georgia. Upon receiving her Master of Divinity, Kim commenced her vocation as an Episcopal priest. Over the past 10 years of ministry, she has served as a college chaplain, a nationally renowned consultant and preacher, and a parish priest. As the vicar of the Church of the Common Ground, Kim co-creates church with people who are experiencing homelessness in downtown Atlanta.

The Holy Eucharist (also known as Holy Communion, the Mass, or the Lord’s Supper) is the heart of the Cathedral’s worship life. Grounded in the rich traditions of the Episcopal Church, the service is set in the grandeur of the Cathedral nave. Our praise of God engages our senses, and the service draws the congregation together through prayers, scripture, preaching and musical offerings that blend familiar hymns, ancient and contemporary anthems, spirituals and gospel. All who seek a deeper relationship with God in Christ are welcome to receive Communion.

Reservations are not required for in-person worship. Learn more about our reopening at cathedral.org/faq.

This service will be streamed here on our website and our YouTube page.
