No Church in the Wild
Old Saint Mary's Cathedral
Old Saint Mary’s Cathedral isn’t the oldest or even the most important church in the Mission, so far as the Kindred are concerned, but it is the home of a splinter sect of the Lancea et Sanctum.
Famously, the outside of the Church has a clock and a quote from Ecclesiastes 4:23: “Son, Observe the Time and Flee from Evil.” According to tradition, this warning was meant to shame those men going to a brothel that once operated across from the Cathedral. The worshippers claim it has another meaning, quoting further, “She will bring upon him fear and dread and trial: and she will scourge him with the affliction of her discipline, till she try him by her laws, and trust his soul.” Any and all Kindred are invited in to test their soul against Her wisdom. The bowels of the Cathedral, they say, run red with the Vitae of those who didn’t fly.
