Join us for a chartered bus trip to the world’s largest Gothic Cathedral

The Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine

It is a truly awe-inspiring church filled with marvels of art and architecture. The Cathedral is an ever-evolving place, so even if you have been there before, there will be new things to discover. Our day will begin with a comfortable ride on a 56 passenger tour bus leaving from from one of three convenient locations:

Stop #1: LIE Exit 61 Park and Ride, 100 Smith Ave, Holbrook - 8:00am

Stop #2: LIE Exit 49 Park & Ride, N Service Road, Melville - 8:30am

Stop # 3: The Mercer School, Garden City - 9:30am

At the Cathedral, we will have a guided tour including the sacristy. Following the tour, Fr. Byrne will Celebrate the Eucharist in St. James Chapel.

After the service, there will be free time to explore the cathedral further and to enjoy the Cathedral Close with its lawns, the Peace Fountain, and gardens including a Biblical Garden with plants, flowers and herbs should be just beginning to show off their spring colors.

Lunch will be on your own. There are numerous restaurants within easy walking distance of the Cathedral. Trip Advisor and other sites have solid recommendations. Our bus will leave the Cathedral to return to Long Island at 2:30 PM.

We really need to fill the bus, so please bring a friend or three!

Before you ask…..
