What good is it, if you say you have faith but do not have works? Faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead. But someone will say, "You have faith and I have works." Show me your faith apart from your works, and I by my works will show you my faith.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name: worship the Lord in the splendour of His holiness.
Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs.

The Music Ministry, primarily a Worship ministry, contributes significantly to all areas of Cathedral ministry and is a distinguishing component of the Cathedral's offering and reputation.
The Music Ministry is dedicated to advancing excellence in sacred music. Its full and unique complement demonstrates that dedication.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God.
Sing to the Lord, you servants of His; give thanks for the remembrance of His holiness.
O sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvellous works among all the peoples. For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised. Honour and majesty are before him; strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises.
Choir of Men and Boys
All of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.
1 Peter 3:8
Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labour. If they fall down, they can help each other up. But pity those who fall and have no one to help them up!

- Personal Contact: Calls & Visits
- Holy Communion
- Spiritual Direction
Through the Pastoral Care Ministry, Cathedral Clergy, specially-trained lay personnel and volunteers support people dealing with all types of challenges, difficult situations and crises.
The Pastoral Care Ministry delivers programs and support actions - for individuals, families and groups - for youth, adults and seniors.
Prayer, care and counsel are provided to support people through difficulties related to relationship, family, emotional, spiritual, health, bereavement, and job/job-loss challenges.
The Clergy and Pastoral Care volunteers pray with and for fellow parishioners. A Prayer List is compiled by the Clergy; a group of Prayer Intercessors prays daily for people on that list.
Calls and visits are made to people who are alone or isolated, ill, or unable to travel to the Cathedral for worship and fellowship. Visits are made to homes, retirement residences, nursing homes and hospitals. To share Christmas and Easter joy, flowers are delivered to those parishioners not able to participate in services at the Cathedral.
Holy Communion is brought to parishioners. And, parishioners who are not physically able to attend the Cathedral on a regular basis are brought to the Cathedral for Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving 'Back Home' Eucharists... followed by lunch and a period of fellowship.
The Pastoral Care Ministry's programs encourage access by people in want or need of support. However, the Ministry is ultimately unprogrammed as it addresses the unique and highly personal needs of those who call upon it.
Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
If you look for me in earnest, you will find me when you seek me. I will be found by you, says the Lord.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
- Sunday School
- Confirmation Preparation
- Baptism Preparation
- Anglican Faith Courses
- Bible & Book Studies
Education and learning to build faith and spirituality take many forms at the Cathedral. Education can be formal and/or informal. Learning can be gained by study and/or experience.
Life-long learning opportunities at the Cathedral begin at an early age. The Sunday School works with children three years and older. A Nursery receives younger children.
Youth are involved in all aspects of our community life in worship and service. Choristers receive a strong Christian education along with superb music instruction. Baptism and confirmation preparation is offered.
For adults, baptism preparation provides formation for those seeking initiation into the Body of Christ for themselves or their children. Anglican Faith, Bible Study and Book Review sessions, and Guided Reading Series are held regularly throughout the Liturgical Year.
God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
2 Corinthians 9:8
Just as each of us has one body with many members, and those members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given us.
There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.
1 Corinthians 12:4-7
Cathedral groups are open to all
people interested in the Group and its activities. Visitors are sincerely invited and warmly received! Joiners are most welcome!
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms.
1 Peter 4:10-11
I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.
Jesus said, "From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked."
Whoever is kind to the needy honours God.
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.
The Cathedral provides a forum for thought and discussion through a program of arts to promote awareness and stimulate dialogue on social issues and current events.
