“As the Father has sent me, so I send you,” Jesus said. Christians are people who sense that they are called live their lives like Jesus. As St. Paul said to the Galatians,
"It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives within me.”

We recognize that Christianity is meant to be a way of life, not just a system of religious beliefs. We look to the example of Jesus for clues and inspiration about this way.
Christianity is at its best when adherents bind themselves to the religion of Jesus, rather than to a religion about Jesus. This is a profound and powerful mystery that is available to everyone.
Read more about our work within our community, and in the wider world. Please prayerfully consider how you might be part of this work.
Jesus said he came not to be served but to serve. Many Christians feel unusually whole, complete and fulfilled in life, when serving and caring for others. We might say that it is at times like these that we feel most united to Christ.
Jesus spoke of the mystery Christians encounter when giving themselves in service to others. In Matthew’s Gospel Jesus said, that when we care for people in need, we are caring for Jesus himself. In other words, we encounter the Holy in serving and caring for one another, and Christians have often insisted that the experience of God is most poignant, most tangible, and most complete in our care and love for each other.

BAPTIZED FOR LIFE
Baptized for Life (BFL) is a project of the Virginia Theological Seminary. Using a Lilly Grant, BFL is leading 21 parishes in seven dioceses in a four-year initiative to build spiritual growth. After our diocese was selected to be a part, Christ Church Cathedral was invited by our Bishop to be one of three parishes in our diocese to participate. The seven-member Christ Church Cathedral BFL Leadership Team will study with our Catechist, using the catechumenate and the Baptismal Covenant as guides to determine a project that will increase our spiritual health. Once the project is complete, we will share it with our diocese and the wider church. To learn more go to the BFL page.
