Memorial & Honor Gifts
Each memorial gift is recorded in the Book of Remembrance: more than 100 volumes of names in a living history of faithfulness, friendship and hope for the future.
Since its beginnings, this Cathedral has been a sacred place to gather in times of great significance—both in our nation and in our own lives. Memorial gifts support the work of the Cathedral while also honoring friends, family and life’s special moments.
Each memorial gift is recorded in the Book of Remembrance: more than 100 volumes of names in a living history of faithfulness, friendship and hope for the future. The book itself began in 1898, almost a decade before the foundation stone was laid, to record the names of all those who came together to make the Cathedral a reality through their generosity.
Join this unique legacy by supporting the mission and ministry of the Cathedral through a memorial gift today.
