In a bid to bring younger peo­ple to church church, Grace Cat­cathe­dral in San Fran­cisco held the world’s first Bey­once Mass on April 25. And over 900 peo­ple at­tended! “We didn’t ex­pect this re­sponse,” Rev­erend Jude Har­mon said af­ter con­duct­ing a ser­vice that mixed sin­ga­long ver­sions of Bey’s tracks, in­clud­ing Lis­ten and Sur­vivor, with psalms and prayers. “We thought it would be kind of a small ex­plo­ration as a com com­mu­nity aboutt what it means to lift up black fe­male voices, be­cause tra­tra­di­tion­ally the ch church hasn’t done a great job of that.” Amen to that, Rev!
