Cathedral of Hope’s 45th anniversary celebration

Cathedral of Hope’s membership has grown by a lot since 1970. And “a lot” may be too conservative of a term. The church, originally comprised of 12 friends looking for a safe and inclusive worship space, has grown into a 4,500-member church — making it the world’s largest church for the LGBT community and its allies.

The United Church of Christ congregation has a lot to celebrate too. On Sunday, July 26, the congregation will celebrate its anniversary during three worship services at 9 and 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Other commemorations will follow. And of course, there are other reasons to celebrate too. July 26 marks the one-month anniversary of the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision. The congregation will also celebrate its newly appointed senior pastor, the Rev. Dr. Neill G. Cazares-Thomas.

It’ll be a big day for a big church.
