At The Cathedral of All Saints, our mission is to help people fall in love with God. We communicate Christian faith in and through the arts. We also support and encourage artists.

In August of 2018, we formed a new initiative to support our mission: Cathedral Arts. In September, 2018, we hired a part-time missioner to develop new arts programming. In addition to the programs above, below is some of what has been done and what is in the works:

  • In November, 2018, Cathedral Arts hosted a roundtable discussion,"Britten's War Requiem and the New Coventry Cathedral," in conjunction with the Albany Symphony Orchestra’s and the boy choristers of the Cathedral Choir’s performance at Proctor’s Theater.

  • Cathedral Arts received a donation and contracted a virtual tour of The Cathedral of All Saints to be released in September of 2019. See a preview here.

  • Cathedral Arts offered support for a rebranding of The Cathedral of All Saints, to be released on September 15, 2019.

  • Cathedral Arts helped provide gift bags for Albany City Schools children at their annual concert and art show on the first Friday of December, 2018.

  • Cathedral Arts began to provide promotional support for Cathedral in Bloom, Albany’s new annual premier flower show, in 2019.

  • The Cathedral Arts missioner taught at the Capital City Rescue Mission and at Koinonia, which serve the homeless and children (respectively), in the city of Albany.

  • Cathedral Arts began a biweekly blog to hold a space for making things out of a desire for God and for beauty.

  • Cathedral Arts is planning the Hidden Cathedral Poetry Festival for April 25, 2020.
