If you are passing by and feel that life is fragmenting into a vast number of irreconcilable, shattered pieces, then please know that Cathedral Church of St. Mark holds an outrageous hope that, in God alone, all aspects of life are in unity. We believe that God is the Alpha, the beginning and that God is the Omega, the ending of all things. So we are called to extravagant hospitality in the confidence that a gracious welcome is central to a cathedral’s purpose. And yes, we are part of a specific religious tradition. We are so, not because one religious tradition exclusively contains all truth, but because when one goes on a long journey toward ultimate unity, one has to depart from one specific place. Cathedral Church of St. Mark, Episcopal Diocese of Utah, is our point of departure. And our companion and ultimate confidence in the journey is Jesus Christ. We believe Him to be the clear manifestation of God’s love for the whole world and the expression that all of our lives are in ultimate unity even beyond the finality of death. In the midst of what appears to be an ever-increasing fragmentation of life, Cathedral Church of St. Mark offers a House of Prayer for all people, an abiding hope that there is a Oneness at the center of human life. Enter, pray, and may your time here be blessed.
