Cathedral Council Elections

Deadline for Ballots: Sunday, May 23

Normally, the election of Cathedral Council members would take place at the Annual Meeting. This year, ballots will be mailed to those who are eligible to vote. (Cathedral members who are eligible to vote are 18 years or older, a communicant in good standing, and known to the treasurer.) The mailing will include a stamped return envelope along with short biographies for each person standing for election. Ballots must be postmarked by Sunday, May 23. You are also welcome to drop your ballots off at the annual meeting.

The Cathedral Council is elected by the congregation and as leaders they play an important role in the life of the congregation. Each year, three members are elected to one four-year term. The Cathedral Council is called to empower, support, and encourage the various ministries and programs of our congregation. Together with the dean, vicar, clergy and professional staff, they help shape the focus of our common life. Questions? Reach out to one of our wardens: Chris Scott or Tamara Harris.

Cathedral Pet Loss Support Group

Thursday, May 27 at 7pm

A child asked a priest, “Will my dog go to heaven?” The priest replied, “Well, if my pets aren’t there when I get there, it’s not heaven.”

The loss of a beloved pet is heartbreaking—maybe even more so while we’ve been isolated from other people. In the face of the tremendous toll of the pandemic and so many other traumas in the world, it may seem inappropriate to grieve a “mere” dog or cat. But grief, like love, isn’t to be weighed and measured, but felt and shared.

The Cathedral for Pets group is piloting a support group to allow members of our community to share their grief about the death of an animal companion and to support each other from a Christian perspective. We invite you to join us. Our first meeting will take place via Zoom on Thursday, May 27 at 7pm. Join the Cathedral for Pets group on Realm or contact the cathedral office for the link.

Prom Dresses for those in Need

Throughout May

Bring your gently worn prom dresses, bridesmaid dresses and accessories (including dressy shoes, evening bags, and costume jewelry) to our outdoor collection site at See House on Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9am to 5pm in the month of May. We will have bins and racks set up on the porch on the south side of See House (36 Cathedral Ave, at the corner of 4th Street).

Our collection will go to the Long Island Volunteer Center's annual Prom Boutique, which distributes dresses and accessories at no cost to thousands of young women on Long Island so that they can attend their prom, awards ceremonies or graduation.

If you have any questions, reach out to Deacon Denise!

Episcopal Ministries of Long Island Annual Appeal

May 2021

2020 tested our faith and communities like never before. When the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted lives across the globe, parishioners throughout the diocese did not turn inward. They brought the love and hope of Christ to each other by meeting the immediate needs of those made increasingly vulnerable by the pandemic.

Episcopal Ministries of Long Island invested over $125,000 in ministry on the frontlines of the pandemic, meeting immediate needs in our communities--including the cathedral's own initiative, Operation Feed the Front. Make a gift to EMLI and join our collective response to care for our neighbors -- and bring God’s love and light into the world. To learn more about the ministries supported by EMLI or to make a donation, visit www.episcopalministries.org.

Special Prayer

God of healing and hope, in Jesus you meet us in our places of pain and fear. Look with mercy on those who have contracted the new virus, on any who are vulnerable, and on all who feel in danger. Through this time of global concern, by your Holy Spirit bring out the best not the worst in us. Make us more aware of our interdependence on each other, and of the strength that comes from being one body in you. Through Christ, our wounded healer. Amen.

--The Rev. Dr. Samuel Wells, St, Martin in the Fields, London
