Cathedral of Hope to announce total of “‘Miracle Offering’

The Cathedral of Hope will announce the total of its “Miracle Offering” on “Celebration Sunday,” Aug. 12, at both the 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. services.

The offering, taken on Sunday, July 29 in celebration of the church’s 37th anniversary, was given as the culmination of a yearlong “Miracle Project” in order to build an Interfaith Peace Chapel, and is the largest offering given in the church’s history, church officials said, adding that the total of gifts and commitments to the project “reach well into the seven-figure range.”

The offering came after a year-long commitment by church members, responding to the challenge issued by the Rev. Jo Hudson, rector and senior pastor, on the cathedral’s 36th anniversary celebration on July 30, 2006. Hudson urged parishioners to spend the year saving and raising money in order to be able to have the largest single offering in the church’s history at services celebrating the cathedral’s 37th anniversary this year.

The money will be used to begin construction on the Interfaith Peace Chapel designed by Philip Johnson.

Cathedral of Hope, a congregation of the United Church of Christ, is located at 5910 Cedar Springs. The services are free and open to all.
