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.
