News

Last month the Vestry approved support of the Eau Claire Warming Center being housed in the basement of the 502 S. Farwell building. Ken Van Es and Mike Carlson represent Christ Church Cathedral on this committee.

This committee was formed due to the overflow of homeless being turned away from the Sojourner House and having no warm place to stay. The committee has raised funds to support CCC in heating and utilities for the building during the winter months.

The basement will be used as a warming shelter during the overnight hours and will be staffed by qualified, trained volunteers during open hours (8 pm - 8 am). You can find more information about this program at this web site: www.ecwarmingcenter.com. You will also find a link for volunteers on this website. The center began operations on Sunday, December 15th. They have served 3-6 people per night open. Please sign up to volunteer for an evening. It cannot open without the necessary volunteers.

Name badges are available and located in the back of the church in alphabetical order by first name. Please make every effort to use them consistently. Since we are all worshiping at one service; name tags will help to create greater connection.

The first group of pavers have been laid in the courtyard!! Justin skillfully planned the lay-out of the pavers and then installed them. He did such an amazing job! We are profoundly grateful for all his hard work…and his willingness take on such a huge project! The next time you see him, please tell him how much we appreciate his work on this lasting legacy. Thank you, Justin! We are deeply grateful! If you haven’t gotten a chance to look at them, please take the time to do so. If you missed the chance to be a part of it, don’t worry, there will be another group ordered to be ready for fall. Please call the church office if you would like more information. There will also be another mailing going out in the next few weeks. Remember….every brick tells a story…..and without yours, the story is not complete.

On June 11, 2019, Lynn Goodearl nominated CCC for a Sunshine award with WEAU News.  Lynn, was recently baptized during the the Easter Vigil.  Here is her message:

"I would like to nominate  Christ Church Cathedral for a Sunshine Award to say thank you to everyone in the church for extending a warm welcome to me. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so many kind-hearted people. Thank You all so much for the inclusion!"

Dear Friends,

The early church came together across previously unimaginable social and political boundaries in the name of Jesus for mutual support, encouragement, and to grow in the knowledge and love of God.

Today, we are facing an unprecedented boundary in the restrictions arising from the coronavirus. Even so, we are still a community that believes that no boundary is too big for God. To quote Saint Paul, “I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Because of the love we share in Christ, we are together even when we are apart. As an outward and visible sign of this inward and spiritual grace during this time of social distancing, we will continue to gather—by Zoom—for morning prayer on Sunday at 9 AM and and compline on Tuesday and Thursday at 9 PM. The community of saints has never been closer. It’s only a click away.

May God bless us all with new life and hope!
