It is also the first community established by St. Raphael of Brooklyn in 1895. 2020 marks both the 125th anniversary of our establishment by St. Raphael and the 100th anniversary of our State Street location. If you would like more information, feel free to contact Father Thomas Zain, the Cathedral's Dean.

Spring Paschal and Mother's Day Concert

Please join on on Sunday, May 9 (the New or Thomas Sunday and Mother's Day) at 12:30 (after the Divine Liturgy) via live-stream on our website or Facebook page or in-person for a concert  featuring litrugical hymns and other music for the Paschal season performed by our Byzantine choir in English and Arabic (led by our choir director, Fradi Broumana) as well as a selction of traditional Western choral music settings. In addition to liturgical hymns by our choirs, we will also hear a slection of music for the spring season in honour of Mother's Day, performed by the professional musicians who call our parish home. 

As we begin our construction project in full ernest, the first-phase being our new expanded hanidcapped bathrooms in the church hall, we will use the proceeds from this concert to help us start this first phase. We need about $50,000 for the new restrooms and, with everyone's support, we can use this as a jump-start to fund this phase of our construction before moving on to the new elevator which will follow.  Please click here for the flier containing more detailed information on becoming a sponsor and on the talented musicians that will perform that day. You can become a sponsor by sending a check or by giving online through this link:
