WE ARE RE-OPENING
Grace Cathedral has decided it is now safe to open our church for services.  After considerable prayer and giving undivided attention to the recommendations given by the CDC, the state, and the Dallas County government, we have made a conscientious decision.  We will continue to follow the guidelines for social distancing and will remain diligent in our efforts to help reduce the curve.  As a religious organization, we hold a dual responsibility to our faith and our community.   We believe God is our ultimate guide in our daily lives, but we also know that our actions in helping our community through this unusual time in history is needed as well.
 Therefore, our church will be re-open for services to the public on June 21, 2020.
We will have 2 services:  8:30 AM and 11AM.
