The Cathedral Welcomes the New Consul General of Greece

The Cathedral welcomes the new Consul General of Greece to San Francisco, Ambassador Antonios Sgouropoulos, and his family. In the City barely a week, the new Consul General and his family were luncheon guests of Metropolitan Gerasimos of San Francisco.

A Mural on the Back Wall

A Mural on the Back Wall

Say, what? A mural? Yes, a mural. Recall, some time ago, we featured the graphic below and said we were giving thought to having it drawn along our entire property in the back, along Stevenson Street? The purpose of doing a mural was to thwart graffiti, which has become a perennial problem. You no sooner paint over the graffiti and, almost overnight, it reappears.

Would You Consider Donating $1 Million?

Would You Consider Donating $1 Million?

Back when Father Scott was helping us raise money to begin rebuilding the Cathedral, at one of the meetings where we were discussing holding a gala-type event, we recall his saying: “If we can get someone to donate $1 million, that would electrify the community.” He used these very words. Since then, we worked in earnest to raise the money to rebuild, and we did, in fact, raise that single donation of $1 million. In fact, it was over $1 million.

It came from the late Katherine Costopoulos. May God rest her soul, as we remember her among the “Founders and Benefactors of this Holy Church.” The time is now come when we are poised to receive another singe gift in the amount of $1 million (or more), towards the rebuilding of the Cathedral. We’ve been cultivating a few individuals and can only pray that this will come about.

Community Kitchen

Community Kitchen

The Cathedral’s Community Kitchen, which began under the name “Soup Kitchen,” operates the third Tuesday of every month. The volunteer work involves food prep, cooking, hall setup, serving the meal and---so important—cleanup. We also have a food pantry, so a few awesome volunteers come early to bag up canned/non-perishable goods for our guests to take with them. Some volunteers arrive earlier, but the typical timeframe is 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
