Dear Friends,

       “We are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses.” That passage from the Letter to the Hebrews has long been a favorite of mine. Here at St. James Cathedral, we are part of a procession of believers stretching back well over one hundred years—pilgrims from all walks of life who have found comfort and challenge in this place, bringing to God both their joys and their sorrows, in good times and in bad.

        Our giving is one way we join that great cloud of witnesses, one way we build up the Body of Christ in our own place and time. It is our giving that makes possible so many of the good things that go on here in the Cathedral parish, week in and week out.

        Thanks to your support, we can celebrate in a powerful and fitting way the mysteries of our faith. We can reach out in the name of Christ to the homeless, the poor, the elderly, and the immigrant. And we can share the treasure of faith with those who are seeking to know Jesus.

        I pray that this year, each one of us will experience the joy of Sacrificial Giving: of giving freely, giving back to God a small part of what he has given to us.

       “Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us persevere in running the race that lies before us while keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the leader and perfecter of faith.” No runners ever had a better cheering section, that’s for sure. And, thanks to God’s grace, no runners ever had a better chance of winning the prize!
Father Michael G. Ryan
