In his words: I’ve been a member of the Cathedral since Dec 2019 and I’ve been involved as a lector on Sunday mornings. The Cathedral matters to me because I view it as a gateway, a path to God. As C.S. Lewis said, it’s nice to want to go to America, but it would be very difficult to do so without a map. The Church is a key map to God.

In the next three years, I would like to see stability and growth. We’ve been through so many Interim priests, now we need one shepherd to guide us.

There are lots of opportunity to serve and grow the congregation. The one area in which I plan to be involved in is the welcoming and connecting of visitors.
