Commemorative Rookwood Tile

The world famous Rookwood Pottery has produced an exclusive tile commemorating the bicentennial of Christ Church Cathedral. The tile is 6 inches square and features a dimensional exterior scene of the cathedral. This view is based on the line drawing by the renowned late artist Caroline Williams. The elegant scene is richly depicted in cream and purple with black accents.  All proceeds are directly benefitting the Cincinnati Scholar House.

Our Bicentennial

1817 – 2017

In May of 2018, we at Christ Church Cathedral wrapped up our year-long bicentennial celebration. Founded in May of 1817, our cathedral celebrated from May 2017 to May 2018 with a series of events that honored our heritage by lifting up with gratitude the faithfulness and generosity of those whose contributions of the past 200 years have brought our cathedral to where it is today — a vibrant, urban church.
