Community Outreach Ministry Vision

To grow closer to the broader Richmond community through acts of service as a Cathedral family and, by this, unite ourselves to Christ.

To achieve this Vision, we will:

  • Help build awareness of existing outreach activities at the Cathedral
  • Be a resource to facilitate involvement and participation of Cathedral parishioners in outreach activities
  • Serve as a sounding board for expanding the scope of volunteer outreach
  • Sponsor community-wide activities (outside existing organizations) targeted for the local community
  • Coordinate Cathedral response to national & international crisis/emergencies
