Every Member Canvass
The Every Member Canvass (EMC)
Sing the praises of the Lord for he has done great things and this is known in all the world. — Isaiah 12:5
This year's Every Member Canvass theme, the First Song of Isaiah (Isaiah 12:2-6), is a communal song for a chorus of voices offering praise for all that the Lord has done.
The trials that we face, though sometimes difficult, refine us and draw us closer to God in a such a way that we love and trust God even more and cannot help but offer our praise and thanksgiving.
The year 2020 has been one unlike any other, and with faith and commitment our community has persevered together. As we look towards the future, we build on a foundation that celebrates meaningful worship and music, engaging spiritual formation, intentional fellowship, and robust ministries of service and outreach. Collectively, as the Body of Christ in downtown Houston, we share the joy we know when we meet God in this sacred place.
The Every Member Canvass (EMC) allows us to pledge our support for the Cathedral's work each year. Pledging is easy and can be done online. There are multiple options for payment as well.
The vestry anticipates that we will need $3.4 million in parishioner pledges to fully fund the Cathedral budget for 2021.
November 8 is Loyalty Sunday, the day by which we hope to have all pledges returned. On that day, during each service we'll say a special blessing for the pledges we have received.
If you would like to make a gift online instead of a pledge, you may do so here.
