BLESSING OF THE ATHLETES
on Marathon Sunday
April 16, 2023 at 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.
Join us for our annual Marathon Sunday worship services, featuring the Blessing of the Marathon Athletes and Highland Cathedral for bagpipes, drum, and organ. As the “Church of the Finish Line,” we salute one of the oldest and greatest races in the world. Marathoners join us for worship, where we pause to acknowledge the runners, their families, and volunteers. We'll ask God to bless them, to keep them safe from injury and harm, and pray, in the words of the prophet Isaiah, that they may "run and not grow weary, walk and not faint" (Isaiah 40:31).
Please note that only the 11am service will be live streamed, as the 9am and 11am services are identical.
