We went to the 9am service. Masks and social distancing were required. The music was great. The liturgy was great. The sermon was great. It wasn't the best architecture, which isn't the fault of those currently running it. I did think it was odd that the architecture ENHANCED the grey misery that is Seattle's weather, rather than contrast it. The homeless encampment was humbling. We all should be doing more, and St Mark's is. It can't be an easy outreach, but they are doing it. Bless you, St Mark's!

Walking down 10th Avenue we came across the sever looking Saint Mark’s Cathedral.
This Building has a very checkered past, initially building started in 1928, but stopted due to the Great Depression, still incomplete it was dedicated on April 25, 1931. but the parish default on its mortgage, causing the cathedral to foreclosed in 1941. From 1943 to 1944, the United States Army used the cathedral as an anti-aircraft training facility; After WWII the parish raise funds to pay off its mortgage, and on Palm Sunday in 1947 burnt the mortgage document. The choir loft of St. Mark's has one of the largest pipe organs in Seattle, built in 1965 by the Dutch company of D. A. Flentrop, and restored in 1993-1994 and 2001.
The white marble font was the work of local artist Julie Speidal in 2018. There are assorted banners and flags scattered about the Cathedral, but overhaul its pretty bleak inside, being dominated by the huge pillars supporting the wooden raftered ceiling.

TIP: If you can, try and visit the vault (crypt) it has some interesting murals.

The cavernous hall carried the ancient melodies resounding from the towering concrete walls. This modern day Cathedral of the new world houses the voices and music chanted for thousands of years. Embedded deeply in the rhythms from the old country, the rituals convey the timeless truths essential for everyday life in a city immersed in the intensity of artificial intelligence. The light of spiritual reality appeares reduced to a flicker, until you step inside the oak doors and remain in silence until the strains from the chorale are heard singing above from the upper balcony. A truly healing and refreshing drink for the soul.

I am not ashamed to say that I planned my entire inaugural visit to Seattle around this Cathedral and their Compline Choir. I have been listening to their podcast for several years now, and I vowed to make it up to the Cathedral were I ever in Seattle on a Sunday evening. The Cathedral itself has a very interesting history, and the Compline Choir has been singing the Compline service since the 1950s! The acoustics in this Cathedral are sublime and the cathedral organ has an amazing tone! The staff and the regular compline attendees were all extremely friendly and welcoming. Visiting this Cathedral and being able to enjoy the Compline Choir was the highlight of my visit to Seattle.

This is the location of the annual Seattle Choral Company Christmas concert. The acoustics are perfect for the music. The organ is amazing! The interior has recently been renovated and looks good. The parking lot still needs repair- it is pretty rough.

Attended the Saturday evening performance with my family. Acoustics are awesome with rich sounds throughout the church. The choir was close to perfect but the chosen songs were dreary and almost sad. Was expecting something far more upbeat but perhaps I just didn't understand the program, nor of course any of the words since I believe it was done in latin.

I reviewed St Mark's Cathedral a couple of years ago and panned it for being ugly, describing it using the architectural genre called "Facist Brutalism". I probably flatter myself to assume that my review motivated the church authorities to undertake a make-over of the facade, but that is exactly what they are doing. The broken concrete exterior is being refaced with stone. The improvement is significant, although the building remains a big, square pillbox of a church. The interior is functional and I'm told the acoustics are quite good. The church fulfills it humanitarian obligations by housing homeless women overnight.

Pick as a stop after your visit to Volunteer Park. It serves as a good break sitting in the cathedral when there is no service. After that, walk along Broadway to find a cafeteria / restaurant.

I appreciate the high quality of music and liturgy. The design inside is very unique, not typical of a church this size, but it works well. The Sunday I was there, there was an African -American priest and his message with exceptional. This is the second time I've visited this church, and look forward to the next.

The Episcopal Cathedral fo St. Mark's in Seattle is a huge block structure - formed from concrete and partially faced with brick. The interior space is large and plain/simple. Acoustics are marvelous, and the organ is splendid. Staff, clergy and congregants are all friendly and helpful, and most quite knowledgeable regarding the history of this building.
