St. Paul's Cathedral

Operations

Finance Committee

Individuals with corporate, finance or accounting experience are invited to volunteer with the Finance Committee.  Members provide informed advice and make recommendations to the Wardens and Rector on the financial health of the parish. Responsibilities include offering suggestions for fundraising activities, reviewing reports and recommendations of auditors, and making recommendations regarding capital expenditures, among others. The committee also monitors the financial performance of the Cathedral during each year, reports monthly to the Parish Council and prepares an annual operating budget for St. Paul’s.

To share your skills in this vital ministry, please contact one of the wardens at this address: wardens@stpaulscathedral.on.ca or through the Church Office.

Parish Council

Members of the Parish Council accept a leadership role in the daily affairs of St. Paul’s Cathedral, and represent the wider congregation at monthly meetings.  Parish Council serves to join together parishioners to fulfill the mission of the Church, rooted in faith, prayer, and love.  It ensures the goals and vision of St. Paul’s Cathedral are carried out, reviews and recommends policy, conducts parish planning, and oversees activities of each parish ministry.  Parish Council is responsible for upholding the standards of the Anglican Church while at the same time fostering change and growth in the developing life of St. Paul’s, keeping in mind the needs of the broader community.

Property Committee

Do you have experience in construction or home improvements?  Are you interested in the history and fabric of the beautiful building that shelters St. Paul’s Cathedral?  Do you have a passion for gardening or landscaping, or puttering around? All of these aspects of our Cathedral fall under the care of the Property Committee here at St. Paul’s.  Your time and talents would be greatly appreciated in this group as members work to maintain and improve the facilities at the Cathedral, while also respecting the building’s history.

Please contact the Church Office to find out about meetings and current projects.

Renew the Cathedral Committee

The “Renew the Cathedral – Reach Out, Build Within” campaign is a multi-year extensive renovation of the existing St. Paul’s buildings.  The ability to serve all is paramount to fulfilling our mission.  With this in mind, the renovation project is focused on five aspects:  Accessibility; Improved work areas for St. Paul’s Social Services; Barrier-free washrooms on all levels; Infrastructure updating; and preservation of our heritage. 

For more information on this campaign and how to get involved, please contact Bette Ferguson care of the Church Office, and visit the Renew the Cathedral website.
