A letter to our Partners

Dear Friends,


Thank you for your interest in being one of the weekly ministry partners for Cathedral in the Night! We are looking forward to having you join us for worship and meal and appreciate your support for the ministry of Cathedral in the Night. Cathedral in the Night was founded to be a ministry of the local community and congregations. Thank you for making this dream possible.


This letter hopes to answer some of the frequently asked questions we have received regarding ministry partners and outlines our expectations for ministry partners. Being an emergent and evolving ministry, we strive to adapt to the needs of those around us. That being said, the expectations and details described below are not “carved in stone” and if you have concerns or suggestions regarding anything in this letter, we hope you will contact us. Please find Pastor Steph’s contact information in the footer of each page of this document.


Thank you for your support and consideration! We hope that you will join us as a weekly ministry partner soon.

Coffee Hour

Tuesdays 10-11 am at Haymarket Cafe on Main Street in Northampton

Join us each week for coffee and conversation.  It’s a great chance to build relationships and relax.  Currently we are practicing the Examine from Ignatius Spirituality.  We share our highs and lows from the week, looking at where we saw God and where God felt far away.  This is a great practice to try each night at your dinner table.  (A great resource for this is a small book called Sleeping with Bread: holding what gives you life by Dennis Linn)

Bible Study

Thursdays 10-11am at Haymarket Cafe on Main Street in Northampton’s

All are welcome to join us for our new Bible Study each week.  We will be experimenting with different approaches to the scripture and will rotate leadership.

Veterans Program

Weekly meal Wednesday from 12-1:30 pm in Northampton WWII club.

We are expanding our ministry to create communities for Veterans.  Currently, we have a weekly meal on Wed. at the World War II club from 12-1:30 pm (50 Conz Street in Northampton). We would love for this to be a place of connection for veterans in your congregations.  Cathedral is working on this initiative in partnership with The Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts and Cathedral in the Night.
