Give Thanks with UTO this Sunday

Every day we have so many blessings that come our way. Let us rejoice and give thanks this fall by participating in our Cathedral’s United Thank Offering (UTO). Having spent time adding daily offerings of thanks to your UTO Blue Box, you can open it on Saturday, November 17 and count your offerings. Write a check for your total amount, payable to the Cathedral of St. Philip (with UTO in the memo line), and bring it to church on this Sunday, November 18 where you will receive a UTO envelope for the offering plate. Or, you can make a contribution at the Atrium kiosk or online at Then, take your empty Blue Box and keep the tradition alive at home until the spring ingathering day!

Contemplative Spirituality Group Offering

Contemplative living is a way of being in the world with an attention to the awareness of God’s presence in our lives. This group, led by Barbara Pendergrast (a spiritual director, chaplain, and Cathedral parishioner), invites us to practice listening to self and each other differently, to become more familiar with contemplative ways of being in the world, to practice staying present with self and others in those places that we want to change or fix in ourselves and others, to be introduced to literature and learning around contemplative writers and practitioners, to form spiritual community, and to have the opportunity to receive God’s love through setting aside intentional time for that awareness.
