Muslims Through the Eyes of Jesus


The Rev. Kevin Higgins, who preached at the Cathedral last October, will return on Saturday, May 9 to lead this workshop for the Diocese.

Here is the description:

In this three hour seminar we will cover the historical foundations of Islam, as well as some modern expressions: Sunni, Shia, Sufi, and the rise of radical or militant Islam. We will also explore how Jesus' encounter with the Samaritan woman in John's Gospel might shed light on meaningful relationships with Muslims today. By the end of our time together, we will understand our Muslim neighbors better, and have a clearer picture of how to relate to them as friends and as people of faith.

Watch for more information soon as we work together to bring this Cathedral Project event to life.

Winter Walk

Welcome to Winter Walk

February 15, 2015



A Fundraiser to benefit St. Margaret’s House


Every winter, we walk in solidarity with women and children whose everyday means of transportation is their feet, in any kind of weather.

The funds raised help St. Margaret’s House improve the lives of women who struggle with economic poverty. St. Margaret’s House is a safe, hospitable place where women and children can receive a hot meal, clothing, and help to discover their gifts, learn new skills, and create a better life for themselves and their families.

The needs have never been greater. You can make a difference by being a part of our eleventh annual Winter Walk, by walking a mile in her shoes.

START PLACE—County City Building at the Corner of Jefferson and Lafayette

Registration begins at 1:30

Walk kicks off at 2:30

Reception following at St. Margaret’s House

Join Team Lillian! - the Cathedral’s Winter Walk team. Sign up to walk with us on the 15th and/or lend your financial support to one of our walkers. We have our sacred honor to defend as the top Winter Walk fundraiser!


Sex, Lies, & Other Family Matters: A Study of the Book of Genesis


In the beginning when God created the heavens
and the earth, the earth was a formless void
and darkness covered the face of the deep,
while a wind from God swept over the face of
the waters.

So begins the book of Genesis, the Book of Beginning: with darkness, a formless void and a God who sweeps over it, bringing form and meaning out of the chaos. Thus begins a pattern in which the earth and its inhabitants persist, continually spinning into chaos and deriving meaning from it only with God's help.

Join us on 2nd and 4th Thursday evenings at 5:30 pm in the Conference Room:
