Why "our" Cathedral? Well, Anglicans are not congregational, but a part
of Diocesan community.
One of the callings of a Bishop is to be an instrument of unity for the
Diocesan family as chief cleric and pastor.
The "cathedra", or the formal "seat" or some say "throne"
of the Bishop, is located in our "mother" parish church,
which is how a "cathedral" gets its name. The Cathedral belongs
to the whole Dicoese, is the place we hold
important gatherings as a Diocesan
family, and is one of the symbols of unity we hold dear.
So, any Anglican
in the whole Dicoese, from north of Red Deer to the Montana border,
from Banff National Park to east of Medicine hat, ought to consider the
cathedral "theirs"! Cool, eh?
