Community Link, a Cathedral ministry now in its ninth year of existence, is one of the greatest programs offered by the Cathedral. We call it “one of the greatest” because it is at the heart of what we are about, as the Church of Christ: linking ourselves, in the community of the Church, to Christ, and to one another. Members of Community Link simply go out and visit hospitalized, institutionalized, home-bound, or otherwise incapacitated Orthodox Christians. By visiting, they are helping share God’s love. They are, in fact, declaring, “we care for you…we miss you…we love you…you are in our thoughts and prayers.” Community Link supplements the work that the clergy perform when they go out and distribute Holy Communion to these individuals. We cannot tell you how thankful we are for Community Link and for the vital ministry it offers.
Community Link typically meets the third Saturday of the month. Please visit our event calendar for meeting times. Please join us as we visit homebound parishioners (most of whom rarely receive visitors). Just seeing them light up when they see people from the Church makes it all worthwhile. Just think: with a brief visit to them, they receive comfort and hope and, above all, reassurance of God’s love.
