We are currently looking for volunteers to help clean pews between services. Information, Caroline Okello, cokello@stjames-cathedral.org  or 206-382-4500.
HUNTHAUSEN GOLF TOURNAMENT Our annual tournament, scheduled for Monday, August 24, could not happen this year. The tournament typically raises more than $150,000 to support the Cathedral’s outreach ministries. Even though we could not have the event, the need for your support is still as urgent as ever! Visit the Cathedral website, www.stjames-cathedral.org to view a message from Father Ryan and an invitation to consider supporting the Cathedral Kitchen in a special way during this extraordinary year. And save the date for next year’s tournament, Monday, August 23, 2021!
season of creation 2020: “Jubilee for the Earth: New Rhythms, New Hope” The Season of Creation (celebrated 1 September to 4 October, the feast of St. Francis) is our time to reach out and ground ourselves in the celebratory nature of our Creator. During this period, we unite ourselves with Christians and the rest of our human family in one shared purpose: to awaken to the urgent need to heal our relationship with each other—and God's creation. This is a time to commit to end injustices enacted on both people and planet, and show the rest of the world what a restored and harmonious relationship with Creation can look like. Visit seasonofcreation.org for more information.
