Congregation Council

Who Are We?
By you and for you, we are your elected representatives. To further the Grace’s mission to the community within us and around us, we work to empower, enable and enlarge the cathedral’s many ministries. Council work focuses on leadership development, outreach, stewardship, hospitality, discipleship and spiritual growth for individuals, groups and the congregation at large.

Why Are We Here?

Congregation Council meets regularly to support programs that benefit the life of the congregation, identify needs within the congregation and to provide voice to congregational concerns.

What Are We Doing?

  1. Any ministry needs support to survive and that’s what we provide. We work with the wide variety of cathedral ministries to strengthen relationships within the cathedral and to streamline their processes and abilities to recruit, sustain themselves, grow and serve effectively and with accountability.
  2. We host several events each year to bolster the life of the cathedral. Our Ministry Social, Congregation Sunday and other events are both celebrations of our common life together and excellent ways to build relationships with each other.
  3. As representatives of the congregation, we serve as “ambassadors” to cathedral, diocesan and community events during the year to encourage the diocese and the wider San Francisco community to get to know Grace Cathedral.

We Want to Connect with You
