Being a Parishioner
Time & Talent
Over the past 164 years many
parishioners and friends have left legacies to the
Cathedral. Their financial gifts – both large and small –
have made an incalculable difference in the lives of those
who worship at the Cathedral. Their generous planned gifts
have supported every part of our ministry – from our social
outreach programs, spiritual formation, sacred arts, and the
preservation of our Cathedral and grounds. Their legacy have
become a part of the Cathedral’s legacy!
