Anglican Taonga photo[Anglican Taonga] Christchurch’s Transitional Cathedral moves closer to reality this Tuesday as contractors prepare to lay the foundations by Latimer Square.If all goes to plan, the building should be completed by Christmas.Construction company Naylor Love has been contracted for the build after many months of discussions.Cathedral staff member Craig Dixon said today: “After 12 long months, to know that we are about to build is fantastic.“There are still challenges ahead. In the end, the story of this build will be one of shared effort and generosity by businesses, groups and individuals together, creating a sign of hope for our city and region.”“Japanese architect Shigeru Ban visited last week to work with the design team and finalize details prior to construction. Some planning is still to be completed but we are at a point where the team believes it is time to now take up the challenge.“The budget is very tight but thanks to enormous and ongoing support from our design team and suppliers, we are confident a building of national and international significance will soon grace our city.”Every effort has been made to ensure that the Transitional Cathedral will serve the needs of the cathedral and its surrounding communities.The structure has been designed for maximum safety and will be built 100% to code.“Design and construction will be unlike anything previously seen in the city,” Dixon said. “The building’s size and scale is unprecedented in terms of Shigeru’s emergency architecture.“Its simple beauty is a fitting tribute to all who have been affected by the events of September 4, 2010 and following.”After 10 years, or at a point when a cathedral is completed in Cathedral Square, the Transitional Cathedral will continue as an inner-city church for the congregation of St John’s.[Christchurch Cathedral was severely damaged by a magnitude-6.1 earthquake that struck the region on Feb. 22, 2011.] Rector Pittsburgh, PA An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Featured Events Associate Rector Columbus, GA In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Bath, NC Submit an Event Listing Rector Hopkinsville, KY Comments (1) Director of Music Morristown, NJ Submit a Job Listing Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Shreveport, LA Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Belleville, IL New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.
