Dear Friends,

“You are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.” Those words from the Letter to the Ephesians are for me an apt description of this unique and wonderful parish. Our parish isn’t just a place we go on Sundays. It’s a family of faith, where we are nourished, comforted, and challenged; where we are surrounded and supported by a wonderfully diverse community.

Sacrificial Giving is all about our support of this parish family. It’s about giving back to God what he has given to us. It’s not the size of the gift that’s important, but rather giving of our substance—giving back in proportion to what we have received, giving even when it’s not easy to give.

The need around us is overwhelming, but as a family of faith, we can do infinitely more than we can as individuals.  Together, we can reach out in the name of Christ to the poor, the elderly, and the immigrant.  We can celebrate in a powerful way the mysteries of our faith; and we can provide a refuge and a gathering place for the city in times of sorrow and rejoicing.

Let us commit ourselves to this family of faith, this household of God. Let us commit ourselves to be good stewards of the gifts God has given us: by participating regularly and actively in the Sunday Eucharist; by sharing our time and talent with our community; and by making a prayerful commitment to support our Cathedral financially, in the coming year.

Thank you for your prayerful response and for all the ways you make this parish family what it is. I thank God for you!

Father Michael G. Ryan
