Five Essential Practices
We believe that everyone in life is on a journey; searching for meaning, truth and real community. This is what you will discover at the Cathedral – a place of meeting and safety where anyone might know the unconditional love of God in Christ.. Wherever you come from, our sincerest hope is that you will feel at home amongst us.
Hospitality – the practice of receiving guests in a warm, friendly, and generous way – is a virtue that is commended to us throughout Holy Scriptures. We strive to make this Cathedral community a place of meeting and safety where anyone might know the unconditional love of God in Christ. Whether you are a pilgrim or a prospective member, in whatever stage of doubt or certainty you might find yourself, our sincere desire is that you might experience here a true sense of respect and belonging.
St. Andrew’s Cathedral is in all things a worshiping community. We gather together to recognize and celebrate the many blessings of this life, most especially God’s never-failing care that surrounds us on every side. We pray fervently for ourselves, for each other, and for those in any need or trouble. We seek God’s grace and healing power, as we are nourished by the Word and Sacraments, so that we might be sent forth in the strength of the Spirit to be Christ’s disciples in this world.
Our relationship with God is an intentional, lifelong journey of formation and discovery. At the Cathedral, we believe that Christian formation equips us throughout this journey by nurturing, challenging, and transforming us as we grow more deeply in the knowledge and love God. On Sundays and Wednesdays we provide lifelong formation opportunities for all ages – from our youngest to our oldest. We also offer many weekday and seasonal programs that aim to further nourish and sustain you on your journey of formation and transformation.
Mission is the foundation of the Church’s identity. As Christians, we are called to love boldly, hope relentlessly, and work for the reconciliation we have encountered in Jesus. As a living body, it is up to all of us to feed the hungry, welcome the stranger, and explore our complex community and heritage. Through partnerships with our neighbors, we strive not only to share the transformational love of Christ, but to be transformed ourselves.
We are able to give fearlessly and generously, because God, through Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit, has given to us in such abundance and called us into community. Our offerings of ourselves – our love for one another, our labor with one another, and our financial support of our shared mission and ministry – arise out of our gratitude for God’s abiding presence which is more than enough to sustain us and never abandons us.
