The Cathedral Book Club

The goal of the Cathedral Book Club is to bring together Cathedral members and friends for thought-provoking discussion and fellowship.  Books are recommended for their themes of faith, spirituality, or human condition. Meetings are held every few months, at the home of a Book Club member. All are welcome. We are a friendly and casual group – please join us! Email office@anglicancathedralcalgary.ca to join.
