2 Minutes for Stewardship

Good Morning, I am Ron Jobe, and I am the Chair of our Stewardship Committee, working alongside the successful Director of Stewardship and Capital Development, Emily Pritchard. ($7.7 million raised)
I have just returned from a month in Europe, and as I awoke last week, the sun was shining, the air was crisp, the leaves were turning colour—autumn is definitely in the air—I automatically started to count my blessings …and they reminded me of stewardship.

Reflection by Andrew Stephens-Rennie

On Sunday evening, the Cathedral hosted the Fullerton College Choir, visiting from Orange County, California at the 5.30pm St. Brigids Eucharist.
Gathered in the chancel, congregation and choir sitting together, the music soared. A choir full of exquisite voices was added to the regular 30+ in weekly attendance at St. Brigids. It was beautiful. It was moving. It was a wonderful way to end the week.
