First, we listen.
Discernment is hearing and responding to God’s call to us. The Cathedral Chapter is excited to begin a formal process of parish discernment in which we listen for the voice of God in conversation with every member of the Cathedral community. We want to hear your stories, your hopes, your ideas and inspirations as we seek God’s will, vision, and direction for our church both now and into the future.
The Listener's are gathering after the 10:15 service on Sunday, August 14th, to share what they have heard from the members of the congregation.
This will assist the Chapter in deciding what our next steps will be. Look for additional information in the coming weeks.
