    It is indeed an amazing experience to walk into a place where generations of faithful people have gathered to share their belief in ‘the gentle presence and the merciful Heart of the God who walks among us’, as Fr Trenton says eloquently in this article. The experience can be particularly profound when travelling away from home, but it is good to reflect on it closer to home too. I often marvel at the hope and commitment and grace manifested in the effort that goes into constructing such places for the community of the faithful, and for all people. While we know ‘the church’ is a community rather than a building, these physical places enable the church community to gather and to celebrate the faith it seeks to live. I hope the Cathedral church community, including the building itself, continues to welcome all people and to provide a place of sanctuary.
