Next Century Vision
Our Future in the Way of Love
Our “Next Century Visioning” process had begun! The steering team for this initiative was seated in April of 2019. Since then, the team has identified objectives and milestones that will help to inform the process for imagining the cathedral’s next century.
Through the fall of 2019, the steering team scheduled a series of “listening sessions” to offer a space where our whole community (both inside and outside of our cathedral walls) can gather and share its hopes and dreams for what the cathedral’s future might look like. The questions asked: Is there a program you deeply love and would like to see supported in the future? Is there a segment of our population that you feel is underserved? Are there ways you feel that Christ Church Cathedral can continue to serve as a resource in the city of Cincinnati and beyond? The bottom line: The committee sought to learn what those who live in our city and who are part of our diocese yearn for and aspire to, then pray about ways to go forward, and make our plans for the next decade.
The steering team is now distilling the information they received during the listening process and drafting a set of priorities and goals for the cathedral’s next decade that they will ask for feedback on. Afterwards, the steering team will edit the resulting priorities and goals for Christ Church Cathedral’s next decade based on feedback received, and offer the final product to the vestry.
