Sustain them, O Lord, in your Holy Spirit. Give them an inquiring and discerning heart, the courage to will and to persevere, a spirit to know and to love you, and the gift of joy and wonder in all your works. Amen.

This prayer is said for people when they are baptised for we know that the life of faith is one of change and growth.  At Christ Church Cathedral, we offer a variety of opportunities throughout the year for adults (baptized or not) to explore their faith in an open and creative atmosphere.  Together, we reflect on our own experiences, study Scripture, and listen to what theologians and scholars have to teach us.

We don't promise to provide easy answers but we do promise good company in the asking of good questions!

Each year, there are opportunities for adults to deepen their faith through the study of central topics of Christian teaching.  These courses also serve as preparation for adults and older teens seeking to make a public commitment through baptism, confirmation, reception to the Anglican communion, or reaffirmation of their faith.
