Cathedral Heritage Endowment Fund

In 2001, Bishop Boland and Monsignor O’Neill had the foresight to establish an endowment fund for the future preservation and restoration of our beautiful Cathedral of St. John the Baptist.

The Cathedral Heritage Ball/Gala has been held every year since, and the endowment is currently valued at approximately $1,855,000. We are only allowed to distribute a certain portion of the interest generated by the Endowment Fund each year. All of the disbursed money is used for restoration and preservation.  Our ultimate goal for this annual appeal will be to build the endowment to $5,000,000.

We are asking our parishioners and other supporters to contribute to the Cathedral Heritage Endowment Fund. Everyone who makes a donation will become a member of the Cathedral Heritage Preservation Society. 100% of your donation goes into the Endowment Fund.

People like you make the restoration and preservation of the Cathedral possible!  Our community of visitors, worshipers, and admirers of this beautiful church unite in support of the preservation efforts.

Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible by Jeff Cavins

If you would like to have a deeper relationship with God and a better understanding of your faith, then join us for Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible. You will not only benefit personally from being part of this study; you will also help to bring about a profound renewal in our parish as we grow closer to Christ.


Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible helps you uncover the story woven through Scripture with its clever narrative approach and ingenious color-coded Bible Timeline. It is a great way to get the “big picture” of the Bible and see how our Catholic Faith is rooted in Scripture. You’ll see how the Bible reveals God’s loving plan for your life, and you will learn helpful ways to put your faith into practice.


The study includes a series of eight informative and engaging half-hour videos presented by Jeff Cavins. Each video will be followed by a lively group discussion. When you   sign up for the program at using our parish code you will receive this color-coded Bible Timeline Chart, a Bible study workbook, and the ability to stream the study videos online at your convenience. The price or materials is $27 which includes shipping.

Please email to get the information needed to sign up!  We need volunteers! Please consider helping us plan, organize, advertise, and host faith enrichment events. We need volunteers of every type including discussion group leaders, advertising, administrative and greeting assistance.
