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
