Spring Into the Cathedral District Postponed

Cathedral District Jacksonville today announced that its inaugural spring event, Spring into the Cathedral District, has been postponed until further notice over concerns about the spread of COVID-19.

The four-day festival of offerings ranging from church tours and a plant sale, dress-up bicycle ride and Ecumenical Palm Sunday procession was originally scheduled for April 2-5, 2020.

“As responsible and caring stewards of our community, we will comply with public health officials’ recommendations and postpone Spring into the Cathedral District until large gatherings are once again deemed safe,” said Ginny Myrick, President/CEO, Cathedral District-Jax, Inc. “It is simply the right thing to do.”

All five historic churches in the Cathedral District have agreed this is a prudent and responsible decision. Church members are encouraged to contact their church offices and/or pastors for further information, especially regarding Palm Sunday special services.

Myrick said the event, which had drawn a great amount of interest, may be rescheduled for later in the spring if conditions permit. “We are grateful for all the partners, sponsors and volunteers who stepped up to help us plan the event, and hope to put their energy to good use in the future,” she stated.
