Covenant Renewal 2008
Since spring of 2007, the Cathedral Covenant Dialogue Group, a joint committee of Roman Catholic and Anglican advisors to their respective Missouri dioceses, was established to examine the present state of the “Cathedral Covenant” agreement between the Roman Catholic and Anglican Cathedrals of Kansas City, Missouri. Bishop Robert W. Finn, Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, and Bishop Barry R. Howe, Episcopal Bishop of the Diocese of West Missouri, appointed committee members under the co-chairmanship of Very Rev. Terry White, Dean of Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral and Monsignor Robert Gregory, the Rector of Immaculate Conception Cathedral.
Over the course of approximately eight months, the Committee considered a set of activities to mark the renewal of the joint commitment of both cathedral communities to their original “covenant” established on June 2, 1974 and renewed on June 2, 1999. This covenant was renewed on Tuesday evening, May 13, 2008 at 7pm during a Vesper Service beginning at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception followed by a procession down Broadway and concluding at Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral.
With this renewal of the covenant, our two Cathedral Communities have committed ourselves to work together around four areas of life and worship: Prayer and Spirituality; Common Social Action; Cultural Sharing; and Exchange of Belief and Practice.
