Over the last two years, the Vision Task Force has developed a Vision Action Plan to enliven the mission and ministry of Christ Church Cathedral. Guided by the words of the Apostle Paul in his letter to the Colossians, "Let your roots go down into Christ, and let your lives be built on Christ, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness," the task force developed a hope-filled, strategic vision and plan for the flourishing Christ Church Cathedral and the communities we serve. Join Dean Thompson and other parish leaders as they present the Vision Action Plan and be energized by the witness of your parish family. Register for this webinar.
