Throughout a growing crisis of unemployment, food insecurity and homelessness, the Cathedral has been out in the community, turning our love for our neighbors into action. In the year ahead, the Cathedral will center its work on supporting the most vulnerable, serving as a center for spiritual and artistic life, and offering a place of worship and solace that brings the community together.

As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine’s priority is to address the urgent needs of the community. Your donations allow the Cathedral to provide the following essential services:

  • Nutritious meals for the hungry
  • Clothing and essential household goods for the housing insecure
  • Affordable pre-school, after-school and summer camp programs for neighborhood families
  • Music and the arts
  • Virtual and in-person worship and pastoral care

We ask that you consider supporting this important effort. Our city, and our Cathedral, have a long road of recovery ahead that is made possible through your generous support.

Gifts made through our website are completely secure. With fewer staff on site and delays in mailing, donating online is the most effective way to ensure your gift can be used to meet the needs of the community quickly.
