Renew the Cathedral to help heal the world.

With Joy and Thanksgiving, Welcoming A Cathedral for the Future
Over the Cathedral’s 115th birthday, we announced our $150 million comprehensive campaign. Many thanks to all who joined us in-person and online for a weekend full of celebration and the inauguration of the public phase of A Cathedral for the Future.
On Borrowed Time
After nearly 85 years of expansion, patches and retrofitting, the Cathedral’s massive pipe organ is close to the point of no return. A lead donor has generously seeded the necessary funds to rebuild the instrument, but substantial support is still needed before the project can be undertaken.
The Virginia Mae Center:
A New Cathedral Home
This 30,000-square-foot facility is scheduled to open in 2023 after three years of restoration and new construction. In its new incarnation, the former College of Preachers building will attract pilgrims for intimate programs that offer a residential component, augmented by cutting-edge technology.
