He put before them another parable: ‘The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field; it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.’

Matthew 13:31-32

Stewardship is our intentional response to God for all that we are, and all that we have been freely given. Baptism calls us to share our gifts with the cathedral community and God’s wider world. As Christian stewards, we respond with gratitude and generosity to all that has been given to us through God’s grace.

Become a Steward of the Cathedral

We invite you to become a Steward of the Cathedral. Sow a mustard seed with us in Garden City that will help the cathedral become a home to more and more of God’s people. Join a whole community of believers who give their time, talent, and treasure for the growth of God’s kingdom on earth. Together our mustard seeds grow the great cathedral garden which nourishes and fortifies the people of Long Island with the love of God in Christ Jesus.

The 2019 Stewardship effort will sustain vital ministries. Here are a few of the ministries that are growing with your support:

1. Fellowship in Faith
Our new Sunday Morning opportunity for intergenerational faith formation offers programming for children and adults as well as a light breakfast from 10-11am. This program is strengthening our community for loving service at the cathedral and beyond.

2. Cathedral for Kids
Our new 9:15 service for the young and the young at heart is the fastest growing service at the cathedral. It is a 40 minute Mass with vibrant music, storytelling, interactive teaching and prayer. This service is energizing young families, grandparents, and all who come to worship with a joyful spirit.

FAQs

HOW CAN I SEE HOW MUCH I HAVE CONTRIBUTED THIS YEAR?

  • With our new online giving system, you can check your giving at any time, download a tax form, and change your bank information. If you are having trouble logging into Realm, contact the cathedral office.

HOW DO I DECIDE HOW MUCH TO PLEDGE?

  • The annual budget for the Cathedral of the Incarnation is just over 1.4 million dollars. The most important source of income is parishioner giving, as investments and diocesan support are limited. Programmatic growth and community outreach are in the hands of our stewards. Your financial commitment allows the leadership to plan and budget effectively, and to manage with confidence that needs will be met. As you prayerfully discern your commitment, please bear in mind that the average annual pledge in The Episcopal Church is $2,800. The cathedral currently has 136 steward households. In 2019 we must raise $300,000 in support for our mission. Will you become a Steward of the Cathedral and help God’s garden grow?

WHY SHOULD I BECOME A STEWARD INSTEAD OF JUST LEAVING MONEY IN THE COLLECTION PLATE?

  • As Christians, we commit our support to cathedral ministries for the coming year. Our financial commitments sustain the cathedral’s mission and help our leaders expand the positive impact of our worship, programs and initiatives.
