Congratulations, Canons!


We’re delighted to install Christopher Caruso-Lynch, Tom Kryder-Reid, Hipólito Fernández Reina, and Mariann Scott as Canons of Christ Church Cathedral this Sunday, Nov. 21 at our 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. liturgies, with a festive reception in between the services. The title of “Canon” in a Cathedral church is not honorific, but rather it is a working title bestowed upon those who are the keepers of the Cathedral’s daily rhythm of life, that is, our prayers. With this ceremony on Sunday, Chris, Tom, Poli, and Mariann will publicly commit themselves to lead us in prayer, for ourselves, for our city and for our Diocese. A common life of prayer is our Cathedral’s primary vocation, and our prayers fuel and inspire all that we do in and through the rest of our ministry. We celebrate with our new Canons, and are grateful for their leadership, both of our spiritual life and our life of work and service.
 
—The Very Rev. Gray Lesesne, D.Min.

Thanksgiving Day Worship

THURSDAY, NOV. 25 AT 10AM

What are your plans for Thanksgiving Day? Christ Church Cathedral will host a Holy Eucharist with hymns led by a choir at 10 a.m. Stop by and give thanks to our holy Creator before enjoying the rest of your day with family or friends.

Examining the Psalms

SUNDAYS AT 11:30AM

Each Sunday we include a psalm in our lessons of the day, but the psalms deserve a closer look. As one of the longest books in the Bible (it definitely has the most chapters), the psalms show us every facet of prayer – from the highest glories to the darkest depths. This miniseries, examining the psalms from three different angles, is presented by long-time CCC member Paul Valliere. Paul is an emeritus professor of religion at Butler University. All are welcome to participate in this discussion of Judaism and Christianity’s oldest prayer book. Meet in the Parish Hall.

Find Peace in the Holidays

MONDAYS AT 5:30PM

At this time of year, many of us find ourselves whirling nonstop as we prepare for the coming holidays. Centering Prayer offers a time to pause in the midst of all this busy-ness and rest in God's presence. We gather each Monday at 5:30 p.m. via Zoom for a spiritual reading followed by 20 minutes of silent meditation and concluding with the Lord's Prayer. There is also a time of sharing with one another how we are doing. Contact Michael Landon for more information and to be added to the email list. All are welcome!

CCC 101

SUNDAY, DEC. 5 AT 11:30AM

Are you new (or new-ish) to Christ Church Cathedral? Welcome! CCC 101 is our on-ramp to learn more about us, plug in more deeply, and help you make connections. It is our basic “membership information class,” though there is no pressure to join anything. Instead, CCC 101 is a space for storytelling, pondering questions, trying on spiritual practices and learning about CCC, the Episcopal Church, and the Christian tradition in the context of community. Join us for lunch and thought-provoking discussions!

We will gather at the church before walking to Circle Tower on the east side of Monument Circle for our meeting. Lunch will be ordered in advance.
