The Cathedral Center for the Performing and Visual Arts is an integral part of the program and ministry of St. Paul’s Cathedral. Our activities are a means of outreach, not only to the Cathedral congregation, but to the diocese and the community-at-large. We seek to be aware of the community needs and concerns of the San Diego area, and desire to engage the community in conversation to meet these needs through art-based programs. We also value the significance of the arts in spiritual formation and the development of faith.
As in worship through rite and ceremony, the Cathedral celebrates God’s message of love and holiness through art, music, and architecture. The richness and quality of these forms of expression confer on the Cathedral a significant role among the cultural organizations downtown and in Balboa Park.
