Cathedral of St John the Divine

New York, NY 10025
Phone 212-316-7540 

The Cathedral St. John the Divine "is the largest Gothic Cathedral in the world. Over 600 feet in length, the Statue of Liberty would fit comfortably under its central dome. It is the seat of the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York and is "mother church " of the Diocese. Charted as a "house of worship for all peoples," its cornerstone was laid over a century ago as immigrants from dozens of nations thronged to the newly-built Ellis Island, and barons of wealth such as J.P. Morgan, John Jacob Astor and Irvin Bloomingdale dominated New York and the Nation."

Canaan's services are intentionally spirited and full of the vitality traditional to the African-American religious experience.
