For here we have no continuing city,
but we seek the one to come. (Hebrews 13:14)

“Those in whom Christ dwells by faith have a mind raised al oft...and while walking upon earth, their thoughts are set upon those things which are above, and ‘their dwelling is in heaven’” (St. Cyril of Alexandria, op. cit., Homily 141). The city out of which He  and those who unite themselves to Him have been cast out has become a symbol of this world or “this worldism,” and its impermanence, because of its rejection of Him. Both the religious and political worlds combined to reject Him, the Jews and the Romans. The city that is to come and that is sought by Christians is the same that was the destination of Abraham, the destination that has been revealed and realized by the Mediator of the New Covenant, Christ. St. Paul reminds Christians of their true home or fatherland, when he says, “our community [politevma, "state" or "commonwealth"] is in heaven” (Philippians 3:20). In spite of the vast distance (spiritual and moral) between heaven and earth, “for us the Lord has consecrated a way through His blood, and has made it easy” (St. Athanasius , Paschal Letter XLIII). He al so indicates in the same letter that the moment when we manifest most clearly that “we are seeking the city that is to come,” is during the Paschal Liturgy, the celebration of the Feast that elevates us up to heaven.

Archbishop Dmitri, The Epistle to the Hebrews: A Commentary


With the lifting of the mask mandate for Minneapolis, the Cathedral no longer requires masks to be worn. Masks are welcome, however, and we ask that everyone follow good sense if they have any symptoms. The use of hand sanitizers and social distancing are still considered to be helpful. We are very grateful - before God and to our parish community - for our overall safety and stability through these long, difficult months! We look forward to seeing you!

Bear one another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.  (Galatians 6:2)
