Funerals at Christ Church Cathedral

Scripture promises us that we are not left alone in our grief. We trust in the good news of Christ’s resurrection, the promise of eternal life, and the healing presence of God’s Spirit.

It is our privilege to walk with families as they bid farewell to a loved one. We offer this ministry to those who are members or friends of the church, as well as to those who are unconnected to the church.

Inturnment in the Cathedral Columbarium

Christ Church Cathedral has a beautiful Columbarium – a vault with niches for urns containing ashes of deceased persons. The Columbarium is located in a meditation garden outside of the Cathedral, overlooking the city below.

Persons who are members of the Cathedral or the Southern Ohio Diocese may purchase a niche in the Columbarium.  More Information ⸻

Get Married at the Cathedral!

Through Christian marriage, God blesses the sacred commitment of two people who choose to make marriage a part of their mutual faith journey. 

Christ Church Cathedral is proud to be an affirming church that celebrates marriage equality for all people, including LGBTQ+ persons. 



Let us help you in this time of grief.

We believe that, for God’s faithful, in death “life is changed, not ended” and that funerals are both a celebration of the Easter promise and a time to walk together through grief and loss. 

Inquire about holding a funeral here, or to request a meeting with the clergy staff for planning a funeral in advance.



Entering the Risen Life of Christ

In the waters of baptism, we are lovingly adopted by God into God’s family, and given God’s own life to share and reminded that nothing can separate us from God’s love in Christ. Holy Baptism marks a formal entrance to the congregation and wider Church.
