Online opportunities
Faith and Racial Equity: Exploring Power and Privilege
Mondays beginning August 3, 6:30pm-9:00pm, via ZOOM

The St. James Cathedral Life, Peace and Justice Commission invites you to participate in Faith & Racial Equity: Exploring Power & Privilege , an 8-week module that awakens groups to the economic systems, public policies, cultural norms, and hidden biases that empower some and oppress others. The series will introduce participants to a framework for understanding and recognizing racial disparities in power and privilege. You will also dive into specific issues, including affirmative action, the school-to-prison pipeline, the criminal justice system, and powerful biases in media representation.
Please note that Faith and Racial Equity is not for the faint of heart! This series is for those willing to wrestle with hard questions and take an honest look at their own attitudes, assumptions, and choices. However, through spiritual grounding and community-building, participants find support and belonging throughout their journey to personal transformation and social action.
This series consists of eight 2½-hour Zoom sessions which include prayer, dialogue, active listening, and relationship-building. There will also be a retreat to build community and Scriptural grounding. Reading materials cost approximately $40. Scholarships available.

Grief Support Group | begins August 4
Are you grieving the death of someone close to you? Grief and loss can have a significant impact on our lives long after the death of the person we love. The grieving process has no timeline and is unique to each individual, but meeting with others who are going through a similar experience can provide support and help us cope.
You are invited to join this 8-week grief support group facilitated by St. James Cathedral Staff Nancy Granger and Rosanne Michaels. The group will gather via Zoom on eight Tuesdays, August 4 through September 22, 6:30pm-8:00pm.

Take Another Look | begins July 27
Have you drifted away from the practice of your faith? This program is an invitation to "take another look" at the Catholic Church. The program begins Monday, July 27 and will run for five Monday evenings from 6:30pm--8:30pm, on Zoom.

Annual Catholic Appeal: Progress Report
A huge thank you to all who have made their gift to the Annual Catholic Appeal. We have now received 588 pledges totaling $474,055—which is quite amazing! At this point, every dollar that is donated will come directly to the parish to support our Cathedral ministries. This year we intend to use the rebate to help offset the losses we have experienced as a result of the suspension of public Masses. We have set our rebate goal at $200,000, and we still need to raise $97,233 to hit that number.

Please note that the online giving page does not always work with Microsoft Edge, so please try another browser if you have difficulties processing a gift.
