Read the August 2017 Campaign Update to learn more about how investment in young adult formation through programs like Life Together and the Barbara C. Harris Camp and Conference Center can lead to transformation.
Because of the generosity and faithfulness of thousands of donors, millions of dollars are going forth to fund these and other priorities of the Together Now campaign. Thank you to all who are carrying this work forward through their payments, participation and prayer.
Over the top!
As of June 30, 2013, with all of our congregations participating, our Together Now comprehensive campaign met its $20-million goal to employ and enable mission opportunities, expand current strategic ministries across the geographic reach of the diocese and transform our Cathedral Church of St. Paul. Additionally, through conducting collaborative capital campaigns, 39 congregations have raised nearly $12 million in additional funds for their own local projects.

Caring for God’s creation: $2 million
Together we will reclaim more fully our role as stewards by practicing, teaching and investing in sustainable ways so that this earth, our island home, might be healed and that all might live abundantly as God intends.
Equipping congregations for strategic local mission: $4.5 million
Together we will empower our congregations to respond effectively to their changing communities so they might continue as beacons of Christ’s light to the people of eastern Massachusetts across boundaries of race and class, generation and language.
Raising up new generations in faith and service: $7.5 million
Together we will nurture and release the rich spiritual gifts of our children, youth and young adults so they might quicken the life of our church today and lead us forward as bold and faithful witnesses to the Gospel life.
Transforming our cathedral church: $4 million
Together we will show forth what it means to share Christ’s common table as we reveal our cathedral church as a welcoming, unmistakable witness to our faith and a center for inviting and equipping leadership for ministry into the future.
Meeting local needs through collaborative campaigns
Together we will answer God’s urgent call in our local places of ministry by helping congregations raise money for self-identified needs. As many as one-third of our congregations will participate in this collaborative effort, supporting the Together Now campaign goals with 30 percent of dollars raised while devoting 70 percent to local ministry and mission needs.
