Light the City

Join us, during the Lenten season at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle for an evening of prayer and street evangelization.

Following a prayer service, teams of volunteers will head out on the streets and invite passers-by to come into the church to light a candle, pause peacefully in prayer with the Blessed Sacrament, and talk with a priest.

7-8 pm: Volunteer training

8-11 pm: Prayer service, adoration and opportunities to talk with priests

Volunteer in one of these ways:

  1. Be a Street Evangelizer – encounter and invite others
  2. Be a Prayer Warrior – spend time in the church praying throughout the evening
  3. If you are a priest, join us to hear Confessions throughout the evening

We invite all to share their prayer intentions with us on Saturday evening on social media using #LighttheCity.
