Christ Church Cathedral is mission-minded. From internal training to external outreach, there are countless opportunities for individuals to get involved. We advocate for the LGBT and Hispanic communities, and provide support to local, national, and global organizations and causes. We work collectively and cooperatively, providing compassionate service to everyone—the homeless, the lost, the steadfast, the strong.
