What is traditionally called religious education is known as Christian Formation at Christ Church Cathedral. Being a Christian is not only an intellectual pursuit, but also deeply a matter of the heart and spirit. When we open ourselves up to the concept of formation, a formation directed by the hand of God, we move into our true callings as human persons.
In its essence, Christian Formation in the Episcopal Church is a lifelong journey with Christ, in Christ and to Christ. It is a continual growth in the knowledge, service and love of God as informed by scripture, tradition and reason.
During the 2018-19 program year, Christian Formation at Christ Church Cathedral focused on becoming beloved community, which is an act of Christian Formation in and of itself.
