The Wayfarer Mission: To welcome all visitors to the Cathedral with love and respect. To provide assistance to those in need. To seek God’s presence in our neighbors.
As an urban church, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to offer some help to the members of our community who have limited resources on a Sunday morning. Sundays are a particularly hard day for those experiencing homelessness. Wayfarers offer these visitors a welcoming smile, often a warm meal and sometimes a prayer. If you are interested in serving as a Wayfarer or learning more about the ministry, please contact Walker Willse or Jon Stanley.
The Commission for Pastoral Care is seeking volunteers willing to provide rides to and from Sunday worship for those among us who no longer drive and therefore are not able to be with us at the Altar. Providing rides for our seniors, for example, who otherwise would be absent from worship, is one of the many ways we in the Christ Church Cathedral community can live the Gospel, to Proclaim, Seek, and Serve. Please give this prayerful consideration. Contact Debbie Webster if you would like to volunteer or if you need a ride to church.
Bereavement Committee members greet people and provide refreshments for visitations before or after a Burial Office or memorial service at the Cathedral. If you would like to learn more about the Bereavement Committee or are interested in volunteering for this very important ministry, please contact Mary Cook.
Working in the food bank is a rewarding experience where you work with like-minded individuals who value community service. If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, contact Shelby Willis.

Alternative Gift Market takes place in early December. Its goal is to provide parishioners insight into some of the organizations that the Cathedral supports and give them the opportunity to give a targeted gift to one or more of them. We are in need of volunteers to help plan and carry out this very meaningful addition to the Advent/Christmas season. Please contact Josephine Chromy for more information or to volunteer.
