Faith is too often treated either as a matter of public morality or as an entirely private matter. The Cathedral’s ministry of public theology seeks to offer an alternative point of view.
- Our faith has something important to contribute to our thinking about questions of public importance
- The Church needs to find a way to be in respectful conversation with the broader community about such questions
- People are actually interested in the riches of Christian scholarship, both historical and contemporary
A wide range of events and activities are offered throughout the year, responding to the concerns of our congregation as well as current events.
