Giving & Stewardship
The Cathedral Church of St. James exists today through the gifts of time, talent and treasure of both past and present members of the Cathedral community.
As we come to the close of 2018, we invite you to help us meet the offering target of $687,000 that we set at Vestry. This 2018 offerings target was a 10% increase over 2017, setting a challenge the community felt it could reach by approving the budget. At the end of September, we are at the 2017 level of giving, which will leave us $54,000 short of our 2018 goal. Achieving our offering budget will go a long way in helping balance our operations.
In 2018 Vestry approved an operating deficit of $89,000 to be financed from bequests. We are at or below budget in several ministry areas. If you help us meet the 10% increased offering goal, we can avoid depleting resources from the bequests.
