Who We Are

Mission Statement

To create - from our diverse people - a community whose purpose is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ, and to be a servant worthy of the Diocese as its Cathedral.

From the Canons of the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma

7.3. The Cathedral Church.

7.3.1. The church, commonly known as “St. Paul’s” in Oklahoma City, is the Cathedral Church of the Diocese.

7.3.2. Except as otherwise provided for in this Canon, the congregation of the Cathedral is a Parish, with all the usual parochial organizations, rights and privileges, and the Rector of the Parish is the Dean of the Cathedral.

(d) Serves as Chair, ex officio of all committees of the Cathedral, unless the Dean selects a member of the committee to so serve or the Cathedral Canons otherwise provide.

7.3.4. The Clergy of the Cathedral may be Canons recommended by the Dean and appointed by the Bishop. The Canons perform those duties as assigned by the Dean.

7.3.5. The Bishop has the discretionary right to use the Cathedral for worship, has the general direction of the services therein, is invited to use it at Easter and Christmas, and to use the Cathedral and Parish House for diocesan and ecclesiastical meetings.
