A pledge is a commitment, made after deliberate and prayerful consideration, to contribute a specific amount of money to the parish community. It is a reflection of your gratitude for the abundant blessings God has given you.
Pledging to give on a regular basis enables the Vestry to make realistic budget projections for the coming calendar year. We hope that all households will make a stewardship pledge, even if it is only a small amount per week, as an expression of an ongoing commitment to St. John's Cathedral.
In summary, here are three reasons why pledges are key to the health of our Cathedral:
- Pledges are a way to include Cathedral members in the mission of St. John's Cathedral.
- Pledges help us plan and budget for the future.
- Pledges help to fund Cathedral operations.
