As Episcopalians, we believe that the mission of the church is to restore all people to unity with God and to each other in Jesus Christ. People work at this mission in their homes, neighborhoods, schools, workplaces and communities. Some aspects of mission we undertake together as a congregation.
The Cathedral's weekly Food Pantry, the partnership with our local school, our engagement in assisting Erie's homeless population, and hosting outreach dinners are just a few of the ways we are reaching out to our neighbors in need.
In addition to our numerous hands-on mission activities we have also provided significant financial support for the construction of a new church building in the Church of South India, and support the urban ministries of the Benedictine Sisters of Erie and the ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania.
Brevillier Village is a multi-phase retirement community sponsored by St. Paul and is dedicated to serving the continuing needs of older adults. Continuing a not-for-profit outreach of the Episcopal Church, they are dedicated staff and volunteer care givers who serve older adults with dignity and respect.
We often designate Sunday’s “loose offering” to a special outreach or mission project in the community and around the world.
