Fellowship

Two women volunteering at May Fete

Here at the Cathedral we know that the fastest way to feel at home in a church is to know a few other people. No matter how beautiful the church, how stirring the preaching, how inspiring the liturgy, community truly happens only when people are brought together and share in one another’s lives

The Cathedral provides many opportunities for people to gather for fellowship, supporting one another and nurturing friendships. It could be around a table for a shared meal, at a picnic in the Bishop’s Courtyard, at Camp Allen during our annual parish retreat or while simply sipping coffee after worship service on Sunday.

However it happens, this is a place where you can feel connected to God and to each other.
