St. Paul’s Cathedral Mission Statement
The mission of St. Paul's is to be the Family of Christ, a loving family embracing all people, eager to help them in their needs by sharing ourselves and our resources. We seek through meaningful worship and Christian growth to express our joy and faith.
In grateful response to the love of God given to us in Jesus Christ, the faith community of St. Paul’s is called to live out Christ's gift of unlimited love that brings transformation and new life not only within the Cathedral community, but also to our brothers and sisters, especially those who suffer from poverty, violence, and injustice.
To this end:

II. We Offer Faith Formation for All Ages
Everyone is on a faith journey and will find education, guidance, and the joy of belonging to and serving in a community of justice and love.
