St. John’s Cathedral will hold a special 10 a.m. Sunday service in honor of Pride Month and 30 years of diocesan LGBTQ+ ministry. Music will be provided by the Trans Chorus of L.A. The Rev. Canon Melissa McCarthy, canon to the ordinary, will preach. St. John’s is located at 514 W. Adams Blvd., Los Angeles 90007.

That afternoon, the LGBTQ+ ministry of the diocese invites all to the post-Covid return of its annual Garden Party, 2 – 5 p.m. at the Episcopal Residence in Pasadena. For reservations, email gleamlainfo@gmail.com. Address and parking details will be sent by return email.
