We believe God has been preparing the way for one of the most exciting phases of ministry in and through St. Matthew’s Cathedral – a future that builds on its remarkable history, strategic ministry and tremendous potential. This unique opportunity at the Cathedral comes at a distinct moment in time in the life of the Episcopal Church of Wyoming as we seek to serve “Christ on the New Frontier.” As a Diocese, we are finding ourselves on the verge of something new, focusing on a “frontier” vision of the future, through an ongoing exploration of spiritual discovery that engages the frontiers of our hearts, minds, churches and communities.

 

As our Cathedral finds itself entering into a new chapter in its historic ministry and mission, we believe it is positioned to experience its most fruitful days ahead, toward thriving in depth and breadth. We believe that St. Matthew’s Cathedral is primed to serve in new and fresh ways in a spiritually transformational role within the cultural and educational heart of Wyoming. This is one of the most exciting opportunities within the Episcopal Church as we envision a cathedral in the 21st century.

We invite you to explore joining us on this adventure of seeing Christ walk the Wyoming road.
