Stewards of God’s gifts
Jesus' message to us about how we use our resources is one of the most challenging elements of the Gospel. The ministry of Stewardship is an invitation to take up this challenge. When we are generous, we acknowledge the abundance in our lives and our confidence in God's bounty and when we give to Christ Church Cathedral, we claim this community for our own with its rich heritage and its extraordinary potential.
'For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.'
Supporting the work of the clergy
The Reverand Canon Priest in Charge Callard has a discretionary fund that he uses confidentially to help those in need. Your offering to this fund allows our priests to respond to those in particular need, to build up the Kingdom of God here on earth, and to fund new mission initiatives.

Supporting the Dominican Republic Mission Fund
The Dean along with several members of our youth group will join St. Mark's from East Longmeadow on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic. They will be doing a Vacation Bible School for over 200 children in the town of Jimani, near the Haitian border. If you can help defray the cost of the trip it would be GREATLY APPRECIATED.
The recovery fund was set up to help people that have had a disaster with their home ie. Flood, Fire, tornado, etc.
