The Giving Tree
The Giving tree is an annual fundraiser that supports Cathedral Youth in their mission work.
Throughout the years the Cathedral community has always been very generous when asked to give to various causes. Providing resources to those who are making an impact around us and abroad is part of our Cathedral DNA. It’s why the Giving Tree has been so successful in sending youth out into the communities of Houston, Louisiana, and Costa Rica.
The Cathedral donations allow us to keep costs low for missioners to do the good work we are called to do by Jesus. It provides scholarships for students who can’t fiscally afford to go on a life-changing mission. It empowers each of our youth to “let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth,” as found in 1 John 3:18. The Giving Tree empowers our youth to answer the call with the support of their church community.
Each of these missions is important to the life and ministry of our youth. Unfortunately, not all are able to afford these trips. Donations to The Giving Tree from parishioners of the Cathedral are the primary source of funds to send youth on these life-changing trips and other activities throughout the year.
During Lent we will be in the cloister on Sundays. You can pick one of the envelopes from The Giving Tree and keep a picture from one of our previous trips as a reminder to keep us in prayer throughout the summer. In the cloister, we are able to accept cash, checks, and credit cards.
Donations can also be made at: www.christchurchcathedral.org/givingtreedonation or you can mail a check to the Cathedral office. Checks should be made payable to Christ Church Cathedral with The Giving Tree on your check memo line as well as on the envelope.
I hope you will prayerfully consider sending one of our students on a mission with both financial support and prayer. - Marcia
