Why Your Support Matters

“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12

The work of transforming the Cathedral into a Catholic place of worship and community is only beginning. While respecting the architectural legacy of its original founders, extensive renovations are needed to the entire 34-acre campus to prepare Christ Cathedral to welcome a Diocese of 1.3 million members and growing, as well as to prepare the Cathedral itself for the sacraments.

Gifting Ideas

Your gift will shine forever, as the Christ Cathedral pursues its mission of embodying the Word of God for all those in our community and around the world. If you are considering the most appropriate use of your gift, we invite you to explore ideas from some of our current donors.
