And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to dwell in. Isaiah 58:12

A message from the bishop

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

Although we don’t know what November will be like in terms of the pandemic, it seems highly unlikely we will be ready for 300+ people to gather in the nave of Christ Church Cathedral for this year’s convention on November 7. After prayerful consideration, discussion with Diocesan Council and my staff, I have come to the conclusion that this year’s convention (and pre-convention) needs to be held virtually.  Read More
