New Online Giving Platform Launched

The Cathedral has launched its new online giving platform, Realm, which also serves as our new database.

If you are interested in establishing monthly or weekly recurring gifts for your 2023 Pledge or other outreach gifts, now is the time to do so.

Please see the link here to be able to access our giving page.

Please note, Realm is not where you make your pledge. Realm is where you will schedule payment of your pledge in whatever increments you might like to do. That could be weekly, monthly, or in one lump sum payment. As you set up your recurring gift, or one time gift please look at those options and make sure the amount that you enter is what you want withdrawn each week or each month.
