March Crosstalk Correction:Thursdays 12:05-12:30pm - Contemplative prayer (until Apr 13) at Christ Church Cathedral Join us for a noon-hour service in the chancel in the tradition of contemplative prayer, where mind and heart are opened to God-beyond thoughts, words and emotions. In silence and through grace, we open our awareness to God whom we know by faith is within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than choosing.

Published ten times each year, Crosstalk keeps church members up-to-date on diocesan news and brings lively commentary, photos, meditations and advertisements into the home.

GIFT CampaignGIFT campaign, 2011- 2016
Contribute to our exciting capital campaign, raising $12-million for parish, diocesan and wider church programs and ministries Through increased involvement and support, GIFT draws us together as one Church. As it builds on the positive results of the stewardship initiatives currently in practice, parishioners will develop a better understanding of our Church's ministries in parishes and in local communities as well as nationally and internationally. Ultimately, this experience will give far more to a parish than merely the dollars raised.
