Welcome!

Christ Church Cathedral is the Cathedral for the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts.  

Dear friends,

Welcome to the website of Christ Church Cathedral.

The most important thing that I can tell you about our Cathedral is that it is marked by Easter joy – as a parish family, and as the mother church of the Diocese of Western Massachusetts. ...more.

 Dear friends,

Confirmation is that time when faith becomes an informed choice.

On Saturday, April 25, Bishop Fisher will preside at a service of Confirmation at Christ Church Cathedral. To prepare for this important experience, I will be offering a series of classes. The first class is on Monday, February 2, at 6:30 PM. The meetings will continue on Monday evenings through April 20.

The title of these classes comes from a line in the Invitation to Confession in the Book of Common Prayer – “Intent To Lead a New Life.” The point is not merely to learn more about the Church, the liturgy and our customs and practices, but to gather with others who desire to explore and experience the core of Confirmation: grace.

Who may take part in this adventure? Anyone! Here are some reasons to join:

1. You may be a newcomer and would like to get more deeply involved.

2. You may want to deepen your knowledge of Christian grace and faith.

3. You may be looking for an evening of fellowship and fun.

4. You may wish to be Confirmed: to affirm your faith as an adult (16 or older) 
and assume the vows said for you when you were baptized as an infant.

5. You may wish to be Received: to have been confirmed in another 
denomination and wish to join the Episcopal corner of the Lord’s vineyard.

6. You may wish to Reaffirm Your Baptismal Vows: to publicly reaffirm your 
faith for any reason whatsoever.

Behind all the preparation will be an abiding concern to experience amazing grace. If you wish to join us, please give me a call at the Cathedral office (736-2742) or email me – jmunroe@cccspfld.org.

Faithfully, in Christ, Jim
