Dear friends in Christ,
We are at an exciting point in the life of St. James Cathedral, and I am writing to update you on significant developments that will enrich and embolden the future of the Cathedral community and its mission.
You may be aware that we have for some time intended to undertake a capital campaign to repair some issues from the past as well as put the cathedral in the right place to grow into the future. I am happy to share with you that the wardens, Cathedral Chapter, and staff are enthusiastic to take the first steps in what will be an inspiring journey together.

Delivered to the congregation of St. James Cathedral at the Annual Meeting on January 28, 2018.
In our gospel reading this morning, we heard Mark’s account of the beginnings of what our Presiding Bishop often calls "the Jesus movement." Since the New Year begun, we have heard Mark’s tell us of Jesus appearing at the Jordan River to be baptized by John and then starting his public ministry, by proclaiming that the time of the Kingdom of God has arrived; of his calling two pairs of brothers to leave behind the family business and follow him; and then, this morning, good Jew that he is, he rolls up in the local synagogue in Capernaum and starts to teach.
