All Saints' Sunday

Thank You For Joining Us Today

We are most grateful to welcome you to our Sunday worship. We wish you God's blessings and love for this day.


We hope that you can feel part of the Cathedral community wherever you are in your life's journey. Know that this is a place of welcome and love for all.


The church is so much more than a building or our Sunday services. At the core of the body of the church is each of you. God’s love and compassion which you carry out into the world from this place, is the living church.


Blessings to you.


Dean Shambaugh and the Cathedral Community.

Old Testament Roots of Jesus Study

Sunday Mornings|8:45am-9:45am

Location: The Chapter Room

Contact: The Rev. Dr. Bob Hanson 

We begin our own analyses of God’s persona by searching the Biblical messages of the 27 Old Testament book's authors.

By considering the historic times, places, events and major personalities of each period we can begin to identify and interpret the major characteristics, attitudes and values that constitute YahWeh's self- revelation.
