Laura Ellen and Bob’s visionary leadership and extraordinary generosity made possible the acquisition of the St. Nicholas property in 2003, as an LLC partnership, and they have now gifted their 50.5% share of ownership outright to Saint Mark’s Cathedral. The historic building provides classrooms, auditorium and resource rooms for the cathedral parish as well as space for local non-profits, Bright Water Waldorf School and Gage Academy of Arts. The sublease income has been used to benefit the St. Nicholas property, including maintenance, improvements, and debt reduction. The ultimate goal for acquiring the St. Nicholas site was “to promote the vision, mission, strategic plan and charitable purposes” of Saint Mark’s. The Muglias’ generous gift furthers that missional goal, and we are deeply grateful to them. Please join me in giving thanks to Laura Ellen and Bob Muglia for this wonderful gift.
