Welcome to Christ Church Cathedral, a joyous welcoming community of faith that is open, exploring, and embracing of the challenges of our third century as a congregation.
When we say BE HERE, we mean more than within our magnificent 1868 building. We mean you are most welcome among us, being centered in God’s Kingdom of love, focused on serving God and all God’s creation.
When we say BE YOU, we mean respecting and celebrating the dignity and miraculous individuality of each among God’s children — most especially yourself, just as you are.
When we say BE LOVED, we mean plumbing the depths of God’s peace and love for us each time we meet and reflecting it through God’s mission to our sisters and brothers within and beyond our walls.
We hope you find what you seek here, and more importantly, that you find questions we can seek to answer together.
