“For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, and I rejoice to see your morale and the firmness of your faith in Christ.”
While we cannot be physically together right now, we can continue to stay present and supportive even while our beautiful Cathedral quietly awaits our return. We can remain active, bringing all the warmth, beauty and God’s presence from within the Cathedral out to anyone and everyone who seeks it. And we can make a financial pledge.
While separated, we remain dependent upon one another to do our part for the good of our church family. We invite you to reflect on the role your faith and our Cathedral community have played in supporting you during this turbulent time and to join us in making a 2021 financial pledge.
It is our turn, our time, and our opportunity to invest in our shared congregational life and ministries to sustain the work in the nation and the world.
Pledges are the Lifeblood of our Ministries
The Congregation remains the heartbeat of our Cathedral and your pledge is the lifeblood of our ministries. The ongoing pandemic has impacted the Cathedral’s budget, resulting in pay cuts and reductions in staff.
Before taking these measures, we had a projected $6 million budget gap in FY21. While we have been blessed with greater online giving, we still need to increase our fundraising in order to continue to fulfill our mission as a House of Prayer for All People. In these uncertain times, your support is needed.
If you are participating in Cathedral worship services, coffee hours, relevant discussions with national leaders, Bible studies, or fellowship groups you should make an annual financial gift. Your pledge is a vital tool to develop the operating budget and plan for outreach, education and other important spiritual and formation programs.
