Are you ready to get your praise and worship on in the House of the Lord…but to the soundtrack of Beyoncé?
If you live in San Francisco, you can visit Grace Cathedral Church where they’re set to hold a Beyoncé Mass.
via NBC Bay Area:
The Vine SF at Grace Cathedral invites parishioners “to sing your Beyoncé favorites and discover how her art opens a window into the lives of marginalized and forgotten — particularly black females.”
In an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle, Rev. Jude Harmon, founding pastor of the Vine, said “the beauty of Beyoncé’s music is she explores those themes in an idiom that is accessible to everyone. We can use it as a conversation starter. That’s what it’s designed to be.”
Harmon also serves as the director of innovative ministry for Grace Cathedral.
Rev. Yolanda Norton, an assistant professor of Old Testament at San Francisco Theological Seminary, will also be a featured speaker at the mass. Norton also teaches a course called “Beyoncé and the Bible,” according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Grace Cathedral is the third largest Episcopal cathedral in the country, according to its website.
Mass is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. April 25. For more information, visit GraceCathedral.org.
