Connect with Us
Christ Church Cathedral is an Episcopal church in an urban environment. By visiting this website, you can learn about our location in downtown Hartford, the times of our services, where to park on a Sunday morning, concerts and other upcoming events, and the many ways you can help those in need through our outreach programs.
All are welcome. Our diverse congregation comes from the Greater Hartford region to worship, pray, serve and learn together in an urban community. The Episcopal church is a safe place where differing points of view, as well as questions, are welcomed as part of our spiritual journey. Many are drawn by the beauty of our sacred space, others are inspired by our worship and music, and still others are nourished by being part of a community of believers in Jesus Christ. Our faith is based on Scripture, tradition and reason.
We hope this visit to our website will encourage you to visit us in person. As Jesus said, “Come and see.” Come and see what God is doing in and through our ministries.
There is a place for all of God’s people here.
Looking to the Future: Meeting 21st Century Challeges on the Role and Structure of a Cathedral
Since July 2014, a special Cathedral Discernment Task Force convened by Bishop Ian Douglas has been collecting and analyzing information for determining the proper role, if any, of a cathedral in the 21st century for the Episcopal Church in Connecticut (ECCT). Its recommendations will be presented to the ECCT Annual Convention in November. Reports on the Task Force's work can be found here.
Concurrently with the Discernment process, consultants collaborated with Cathedral clergy leaders in finding effective ways to articulate a transitional organizational structure to the congregation and ECCT. Information on the structure, together with current Cathedral Staff Portfolios, was published in January in the monthly newsletter, The Grapevine. That special edition can be found here.
