For many years, the Cathedral Service League was one of the central women’s service organizations active in Cathedral life. The Cathedral Service League’s legacy is a trust established to support young adults preparing for study and vocational preparation after high school.

Applicants must meet several requirements in order to be eligible for a grant award from the Cathedral Service League Trust. An applicant must be:

  • A baptized Christian (copy of baptismal certificate required)

  • A high school graduate (copy of diploma required)

  • An incoming student pursuing postsecondary education full-time in the upcoming academic year (copy of acceptance letter required)

  • An active member in good standing at the Cathedral of the Incarnation

Cornelia Clinch Stewart Scholarship Fund

The Cathedral Chapter announces the Cornelia Clinch Stewart Scholarship Fund, a new scholarship offered by The Cathedral of the Incarnation.

This scholarship is dedicated to supporting students in Grades 1-12 residing in Kings, Queens, Nassau, or Suffolk Counties, New York, who aspire to attend Episcopal primary or secondary schools within or outside the Diocese. Named after Cornelia Clinch Stewart, the esteemed benefactor of the Cathedral, this fund seeks to honor her legacy.

Eligible applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents, members (or part of a member family) of a parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island and enrolled in accredited Anglican/Episcopal tradition schools.

The scholarship application deadline is June 30, 2024. We encourage interested candidates to visit www.incarnationgc.org/clinchfund for detailed information and to commence the application process. We eagerly anticipate your submissions.

CSA Farm Share 2024 Season

The Hawthorne Valley Farm is happy to return to the Cathedral of the Incarnation this summer.

The Farm has a 350–member CSA and supplies organic and Biodynamic® produce to Columbia County residents and to the New York City communities of Garden City, Inwood, and Riverdale. Over 40 varieties of vegetables are grown on 16+ acres, and fruit shares from local farmers are also available. The CSA includes weekly delivery of produce for approximately 22 weeks.

The rewards of CSA membership are great: learning to eat seasonally, cooking and preserving new and interesting vegetables, celebrating the growing season at special events on the farm, and coming to feel a sense of connection to Hawthorne Valley and other farms in the region!

Join our CSA farm share by clicking here. We start in Garden City the first Thursday in June!

Summer Coffee Hours Need Volunteers

As summer approaches, it’s time to start planning for summer coffee hours. We’ll be under the tent after the 9:15 service, and on the south side of the cathedral after the 10am service. We need volunteers at each service to make these coffee hours happen.

We’ve streamlined the tasks, so coffee will already be made, lemonade chilled, and paper products ready. The rest is pretty simple; click here to learn more and sign up.

Experienced hosts will be available to show you where things are and answer any questions. These coffee hours are a wonderful opportunity for fellowship, not to mention enjoying our beautiful cathedral grounds. But we need help to make them happen—many hands make light work. Click here to let us know when you are available so we can make sure all our Sundays are covered. If you have questions, email connect@incarnationgc.org.

Cathedral Connect - Celebrations Ministry

As part of Cathedral Connect, we are looking for volunteers to join our 'Celebrations' ministry. This will entail connecting with our cathedral community by celebrating milestones in their lives. We will be sending hand-written greeting cards on a monthly basis to celebrate events including key milestone anniversaries of baptisms or confirmations, children's birthdays and Christmas.

We provide the ingredients (list of recipients, cards, pens, self-addressed envelopes, postage) and you join us to hand-write the cards with love in your hearts.

We plan to convene once a month at See House, likely in the afternoon, to write out the cards and enjoy fellowship. We'll schedule in advance, and volunteers will join if they are able to attend that month.

Please contact vergers@incarnationgc.org if you have any questions or would like to participate.

A Prayer for Juneteenth

Almighty God, you rescued your people from slavery in Egypt, and throughout the ages you have never failed to hear the cries of the captives. We remember before you our siblings in Galveston, Texas who on June 19, 1865 received the glad tidings of their emancipation. Forgive us for the many grave sins that delayed that liberating word and have quieted it in the many years since. Anoint us with your Spirit to bring good news to the poor, to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, and to proclaim the year of your favor; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. — Prayer by the Rev. Joshua P. Steele, slightly edited
