REMEMBER*REFLECT*RESOLVE: Honoring Matthew Shepard

December 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Honoring Matthew Shepard

Join us to commemorate the life and legacy of Matthew Shepard, on what would have been his forty-sixth birthday, with an evening service of song and prayer and the dedication of a portrait of Matthew by artist Kelly Latimore [https://kellylatimoreicons.com/] commissioned by LGBTQ members of the Cathedral staff. Matthew’s parents, Dennis and Judy Shepard, will join the service in St. Joseph’s Chapel, where Matthew is interred. The chapel will also be open from 2:00-5:00 pm for reflection and prayer with the portrait of Matthew on display and the Shepards on hand to greet visitors. The Cathedral’s online Morning Prayer on December 1 will be offered in remembrance of Matthew and led by the Right Reverend V. Gene Robinson.
