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. 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.
