Planning Our Future in the Way of Love

Our “ Next Century Visioning” process has begun! The steering committee has scheduled a series of “listening sessions” to offer a space where our whole community can gather and share its hopes and dreams for what the cathedral’s future might look like. The bottom line is: We seek to learn what those who live in our city and who are part of our diocese yearn for and aspire to, then pray about ways to go forward, and make our plans for the next decade.
The listening sessions allow for a time for fellowship and discernment for those involved and are conducted by a member of the steering team, whose sole purpose is to listen. Once these sessions have concluded, the steering team will distill the information they receive during the listening process and draft a set of priorities and goals for the cathedral’s next decade for feedback.

Nine sessions are available in October and early November so that you can find a time that works for you. To see the schedule or to learn more about our visioning process, visit cincinnaticathedral.com/next-century-vision/.
