They are non-proselytizing and ecumenical. They welcome and support all people. common cathedral serves as an important community for people experiencing homelessness, and for faith communities who want to be in supportive relationship with un-housed individuals and their friends. common cathedral welcomes everyone to participate fully in our worship and extended hospitality.

St. Saviour’s Panorama


Seth Thompson, an assistant professor of design at the American University of Sharjah (United Arab Emirates), produced this beautiful panorama of St. Saviour’s.  Click here to explore the depths of this 360-degree view of our sanctuary. He has graciously allowed us to maintain a home for this on our website.
