Invitation to Generosity and Endowment: A Message from Cathedral Clergy

“For you know how generous our Lord Jesus Christ has been: he was rich, yet for your sake, he became poor, so that through his poverty you might become rich.” (2 Corinthians 8:9)

The tradition of giving, building, and supporting has a long history in our Church, and the ethos of giving and supporting is deeply ingrained in our cultural fabric. Our Cathedral community has demonstrated over a century–long tradition of outstanding giving – both to the church and to those in need. During the Great Depression, the Chicago Tribune reported that only two buildings were being built in the city of Chicago: a Post Office built by the Federal Government, and the Serbian Orthodox Church on Schiller Street built by the people of our community. As historical circumstances presented various challenges, our community responded with generosity and decisiveness. Whether by sending soldiers from our community back to fight in WWI – with the help of Circle of Serbian Sisters; receiving displaced persons after WWII; or helping during the wars of the 1990s – our people always found it in their hearts to give. During the fifteen years of my service at our Cathedral, I witnessed many outstanding acts of kindness, giving and donating, and inspiring acts of love.
