About The Cathedral

Christ Church Cathedral’s ministry focuses on Open Hearts, Open Doors, Open Minds. This vision shapes and informs all that the Cathedral community does. This Cathedral Church is a community enriched and enlivened by its diversities.

It is a place for worship, for growth in the life of faith, and daily discipleship. It is a home to the performing and visual arts, and is a positive space for members of the LGBTQ community where people of all abilities, ages, ethnicities and backgrounds are welcome.
