Stewardship—an act of the heart
The good person out of the store of goodness in his heart produces good. Luke 6:45
This year it is not just fill in the little boxes, although, as you can see, we have still provided you with plenty of them, and we want to ensure we have your current contact information. As the Cathedral family, we are asking for your ideas, your vision for our community as we go forward to an even better place than pre-pandemic. We have had to rethink so many ordinary parts of our lives, and each of us probably has a real sense of what is essential to build upon. Let us know what is on your heart for our parish. What is your hope for the future of our parish?

As we plan for the year ahead, we would appreciate you letting us know with what you may currently be involved and what is of interest to you going forward, whether that is next week or when you believe it will be safe for you to participate.
