The Cathedral Church of the Advent, Birmingham, AL
The Advent is a Gospel-centered church, with a "living, daring confidence in God's grace" (Martin Luther) permeating all our programs and ministries. Holding to what the Letter of Jude calls "the faith that was once delivered to the saints,"  this Gospel focus finds the Cross and Resurrection of Jesus at the center of everything. The most comprehensive summation of our traditional Anglican doctrine is found in the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion.
What are the “fruits” of this Gospel-centeredness? We are a church with a heart for the Gospel, for those who have not heard the Gospel, for those who have been burned by the church, and for the city of Birmingham. Since 1982 the Advent has served as the cathedral for the Diocese of Alabama.Among other ministries, we have offered a Lenten Preaching Series every weekday during Lent for more than a century, featuring preachers from all over the world; our concurrent ECW Lenten Lunches program serves thousands of meals to raise money for outreach and missions. If you are ever in Birmingham, we hope you will visit! (2017 Sixth Avenue North, Birmingham, Alabama 35203; 205.251.2324; www.AdventBirmingham.org)


The Cathedral Church of All Saints, Milwaukee, WI
The Cathedral Church of All Saints has served as a center for mission, formation, and worship in the Diocese of Milwaukee since 1873. More than 100 saints depicted in the windows and statuary keep vigil over a sacred space that is steeped in prayer and incense. Blessed Jackson Kemper, the first Bishop of Wisconsin, envisioned a cathedral that would be a center for formation, ministry, and worship. All Saints’ strives to live into that vision in the context of the 21st century. The liturgies at the cathedral allow worshipers to escape our loud and raucous world by offering a moment of transcendence. The 10 a.m. service on Sunday features a 30-voice choir that is unsurpassed in Milwaukee. All Saints’ is also resident to five ensembles and hosts numerous musical events throughout the year. The cathedral congregation extends service to the community through cooking and serving meals to the homeless and inner-city residents, and by underwriting feeding ministries with funds raised at the annual  Hunger Book Sale, which generated $20,000 in the past year. (818 East Juneau Ave., Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53202; 414.271.7719; www.ascathedral.org)

The Church of St. Michael & St. George, St. Louis, MO
T
The Church of St. Michael & St. George outside of St. Louis is never more alive than in the season of Advent when the music takes on an added poignancy alongside the thought-provoking preaching of the Gospel. Advent begins with the Great Litany, sung in a procession recalling the journey of the Israelites through the desert in search of God’s Promised Land. A candlelight service of Advent Lessons and Carols is sung on the Second Sunday of Advent; salvation history is recounted as the metaphorical procession — from darkness to light — leading us to the true Light, Jesus Christ. The traditional Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is sung on the afternoon of the Fourth Sunday of Advent as the story of Christ’s birth is told. The season culminates on Christmas Eve. Advent is our way of being reoriented to the strange new world of the Gospel and remade in the likeness of Christ. (6345 Wydown Blvd., St. Louis, Missouri 63105; 314.721.1502; www.csmsg.org)

St. George’s Church, Nashville, TN
St. George’s Church, Nashville, is a growing and vibrant parish committed to a gracious expression of Anglicanism within the Episcopal Church.

Our common life flows out of a primary commitment to beautiful, reverent, and relevant Anglican worship that places the crucified and risen Christ at the center. Our expanding discipleship ministries rest on the conviction that all Christians can be empowered to carry on the Lord’s work. With strong support (and challenge) from professional staff, more and more of our learning in Christ is lay led, feeding a dynamic leadership pipeline for the future. And by placing the Great Commandment and the Great Commission ever before us, we look beyond comfortable parochialism to an even more deliberate missional orientation, generous and passionate in outreach and evangelism.

St. John’s Church in Savannah, chartered in 1841, is an unusually traditional parish within the Episcopal Church, a church that still walks in the “old paths” of Anglican belief and practice. Committed to upholding and propagating the historic Faith and Order of the Catholic Church as set forth in the Anglican formularies and shared with the Anglican Communion, our priorities are reverent worship “in the beauty of holiness,” according to the forms preserved in the 1928 Prayer Book; teaching, preaching, administration of the Sacraments, and pastoral care grounded in Scripture and the Church’s tradition; and support for young families raising children in the faith. Its Gothic Revival church building, consecrated in 1853, is notable for its stained glass, beamed roof, and majestic reredos.  The Parish House, one of Savannah’s finest antebellum mansions, is a place of hospitality for all; and Cranmer Hall (2004) provides up-to-date facilities in an attractive setting for Christian education and community outreach.

St. Mark's Cathedral, Shreveport, LA
S
Fellowship, worship, and service are joined closely at St. Mark’s Cathedral, Shreveport. Newcomers are welcomed at breakfast once a month before the 10:30 service. On Wednesday nights, supper is served before the evening’s choir practices, youth programs, and a short conversational lecture for adults on Scripture and the spiritual life. The cathedral’s choral program includes the Boys and Girls Choir, dedicated to the highest musical standards, to educating and forming young people through music, and to enriching the cultural life of Shreveport. Adults participate in the Cathedral Choir, which sings a repertoire from Gregorian chant to 21st-century sacred music for the 10:30 service. The Evensong choir is an auditioned group made of up staff singers and adult volunteers who sing for weekly Choral Evensong, joining the Boys and Girls Choir. The Community Ministries is particularly concerned with meeting the needs of children, the homeless, elderly, and the victims of poverty, crime, and religious persecution, not only locally but around the world. The Cooking Crew prepares meals together monthly for several area groups. In 2014, the Cooking Crew made approximately 7,400 meals, not including those for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

St. Martin’s Church, Houston, TX
Archbishop Justin Welby recently offered these wise words: “The best decision anyone can ever make, at any point in life, in any circumstance, whoever they are, wherever they are, is to become a disciple of Jesus Christ.” This quote fully sums up the core mission of St. Martin’s:  to “make and grow disciples of Christ.” Carved into St. Martin’s pulpit are the words from Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, “for I resolved to know nothing while I was amongst you except Jesus Christ and him crucified” (2:2). With more than 9,200 members and an average of 18,000 events on our campus every year, there is but one, major, over-arching goal: to make Jesus Christ known in such a way that visitors as well as members come to embrace him as Lord and Savior. We are deeply committed to providing a wide array of opportunities for worship, discipleship, fellowship, service and outreach; but resting behind each of these opportunities is a deep desire to connect all people with Jesus Christ. We offer six worship services on Sundays and three on Wednesdays, a cornucopia of Christian education opportunities throughout the week, and mission initiatives in greater Houston and beyond our borders to Costa Rica, Bolivia, and Honduras. We welcome all those who seek to “know Christ and make him known.” Come join us! (717 Sage Road, Houston, Texas 77056; 713.621.3040; www.stmartinsepiscopal.org)


S. Stephen’s Church, Providence, RI
Inspired by the ideals of the Oxford Movement almost from its founding in 1839, S. Stephen’s Church in Providence continues to proclaim the truth of the Catholic Faith within the Episcopal Church through liturgy, music, preaching, teaching, prayer, study, fellowship, and service. Its 154-year-old Richard Upjohn gothic revival church building stands in the middle of the Brown University campus. S. Stephen’s spreads the Good News through daily Masses, excellent preaching and teaching, a meal site for the homeless, and the Episcopal Campus Ministry. The parish comprises a diverse community of Christians from every walk of life who unite through Anglo-Catholic worship in the beauty of holiness. The rector, Fr. John D. Alexander, says that “the parish’s life is marked by deep fidelity to the past, hopeful anticipation of the future, and joyful engagement with the wider Church and world in the present.” (114 George St., Providence, Rhode Island 02906; 401.421.6702; www.sstephens.org)


St. Timothy's, Raleigh, NC
St. Paul enjoins St. Timothy to “study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Tim. 2:15). The people of St. Timothy’s Church in Raleigh, North Carolina, take these words seriously and attempt as best they know how to fulfill this charge as a parish family and as individual members of Christ’s body — by faithful worship according to the Book of Common Prayer, reading and studying Holy Scripture, and taking part in the fellowship of the parish family. The church supports St. Timothy’s School, founded in 1958 as the first non-public day school to be accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and  Schools. The school has earned an indelible reputation for high academic standards as well as Christian morals and values.  (4523 Six Forks Road, Raleigh, North Carolina 27609; 919.787.7590; www.sttimothyschurch.org)
