Cathedral Outreach Ministries

Provides hope and spreads the Gospel of Jesus Christ through serving God’s people. Many of our ministries grow out of our sweet ministry spot in front of the laundromat on Jackson Street in Hempstead. Outreach Ministries address the needs of neighbors on a weekly basis in various capacities. We serve meals twice per week and on special occasions. We offer healing prayers on the street for our friends. We partner with various organizations in Nassau County to offer support, collaboration and assistance. Many ministry opportunities exist throughout the year: one time, weekly, monthly and seasonally. Participation will deepen your walk with God and your understanding of life’s blessings. Please contact The Rev. Denise Galloway, Director of Cathedral Outreach at

We need contributions to this effort. To donate, please visit our donate page and follow the instructions for giving. Select "Feed the Front" as the fund.

Prison Ministry

The cathedral has a growing ministry at the Nassau County Correctional Center. We visit with those incarcerated, lead prayer, worship and meditation and share the love of God with those in difficult circumstances. This fall, our prison ministry will be expanded to the Women’s Unit of the jail. If you feel called to participate in this ministry, please contact The Rev. Denise Galloway at

Interfaith Nutrition Network

INNcarnation Ministry and St. George’s Church Food Pantry are on hold at this time due to Covid-19. As we gather updated information on these programs we will keep you informed of service opportunities.

The Cathedral of the Incarnation supports The INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network) in service, awareness and fundraising through serving meals at the Mary Brennan INN soup kitchen in Hempstead, collecting toiletry "Easter Baskets" in spring and backpacks and school supplies in the fall; and creating fundraising awareness events benefiting the guests of The INN.

Much in the Christian tradition centers around food: hospitality, the Eucharist, fellowship and feeding those in need. From these traditions, a new Cathedral ministry effort was born.
