2016 STEWARDSHIP PLEDGE FORMS

Stewardship Drive & Pledge Cards for the 2016 Budget Year will be mailed Thanksgiving Week. Please take a moment to read the stewardship letter from our Senior Warden Linda Merriman:

Dear Fellow Cathedral Paishioners,

It is time to launch our 2016 Stewardship Pledge Drive. This coming year, more than ever, our Cathedral is depending on you for financial support. Your donation will support not only the physical plant of the Cathedral that provides our central place of worship, but the many ministries, old and new, that are as much a part of the Cathedral as the altars, the pews, and the pulpit.

In 2016, the ministries will include our Choir, the newly formed Trinity Cathedral Boy Choir, and the support of our clergy-just some of the things that make possible the beautiful worship experience we cherish. Our Outreach Ministry and its Walk-In Ministry efforts are a central point of our Mission, as are its support of other ministries such as Shepherd’s Heart, Bethlehem Haven, and Lydia’s Place. Add to those the countless other ways in which we minister to ourselves and to others and the need for your donations becomes very apparent.

We are also facing other common issues in 2016. The rising costs of maintaining Trinity Cathedral facilities is one example. The first phase of the roof repairs are in progress; the costs for the second phase have yet to be determined. Much needed electrical work will exceed $60,000. The Parish and Finance Offices have prepared numerous grant requests and have received commitments from The Advancement Society for Protestantism in Pennsylvania, the Diocese Growth Fund, and Pittsburgh History and Landmarks. These grants will help offset what has already been spent this year on physical plant repairs. But with all grant giving, we do not know how much the Cathedral will receive from these requests.

As you prayerfully consider your pledge for donation in 2016, please keep in mind what your dollars can do. I ask that you be generous in 2016, as you have been in the past, to ensure that we can continue to do these good works. Also, as in years past, you can designate how a portion of your pledge amounts are allocated by marking the appropriate line on the enclosed pledge card. You can drop your pledge card into the offering plate or mail the card to: Trinity Cathedral 325 Oliver Avenue Pittsburgh PA 15222.

Thank you, as always, for your continued support of Trinity Cathedral.
Sincerely,
Linda Merriman
Senior Warden, Chapter of Trinity Cathedral

OUTREACH MINISTRY HELPS MAKE THANKSGIVING HAPPIER FOR 81 FAMILIES

In the 3 1/2 days the Outreach Ministry served as Walk-In Ministry Church of the Week November 16-20, we served 81 families (110 individuals) and we packed over 100 bags of food. We normally serve 30-40 families over 5 days! The Outreach Office was only open half-day on Wednesday because we had to go to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank to get more gift cards and did not open on Friday because we served more people than we planned for and were just about out of food. We served 20 children under the age of 17; 20 young adults ages 18-34; 51 adults ages 35-59, & 19 clients over the age of 60. Of those we served, 48 are disabled and 4 were veterans. As a city outreach we recognize and respect all God’s children, and I know they would want to thank everyone at Trinity for all they do to support our Outreach efforts. Special thanks to the congregation for providing the support so those we served will be able to share a turkey dinner with their families and give thanks to the Lord for all they have on this Thanksgiving Day.

OUTREACH MINISTRY UPDATE

Our small core of volunteers continues to serve every fifth week at our Walk-in Ministry Monday through Friday from 10:00am to noon and from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. We purchase our food and toiletries to distribute to our clients from the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, and have many of our costs covered by grants from Attorneys Against Hunger and by City of Pittsburgh Community Block funds, but are always happy to receive donations to bolster our supplies with items not available in any given month through GPCFB that we must source through other vendors. If you would like to be a part of this ministry, please consider either donating your time or your money (‘check payable to Trinity Cathedral with designation ‘Walk-In Ministry’ ). Both would be gratefully accepted. If you would like additional information on what we do, please contact Josie White at maryjo.white@comcast.net.

ALTAR GUILD IS ASKING US TO SERVE AND SUPPORT

389800_274614605928261_352686881_n.jpg

The Altar Guild is now down to seven(7) members, but we cover more than 365 services held at the Cathedral throughout the year (not only for our Sunday and weekday parishioners, but for Diocesan functions as well). That is a lot of work being done by very few people. If you have the time, we can provide the training and would welcome new members with open arms and grateful hearts. Please contact Priscilla Castner at (412)741-8848 or email lpcastner@hotmail.com if you are interested in learning more about how our guild serves the Cathedral.

Another area falling under the Altar Guild’s purview is altar flowers. The altar arrangements at the high altar cost almost $100 per Sunday. If you wish to defray those costs on a given Sunday, you may sponsor flowers in memory/in honor of a loved one for a suggested minimum donation of $60. Any Sunday not covered by a sponsored memorial is picked up by the Altar Guild, and the yearly outlay is considerable. If you would like to sponsor flowers, please contact Priscilla Castner at 412-741-8848 or email lpcastner@hotmail.com
