Building Update: In the Home Stretch for the Exterior! Αμήν και πότε;

Once again, we’re in the home stretch as far as the exterior is concerned. Honestly, we can’t wait for it to finish. However, with the current building boom in San Francisco, the Contractor has been experiencing difficulty getting subs to do the work. Given the challenges of getting workers and coming up with the money to pay our contractor, we are, nevertheless, nearing completion of the exterior. We are eagerly waiting for a Conditional Use Permit, which will enable us to secure a third-party operator to run the parking. As for the interior: we hope to begin the upper interior once the present Contractor finishes his work. However, in order for us to continue, we need your prayers and your continued financial support. As we know, some $4 million is still needed to complete and furnish the interior of the Cathedral. To date, we’ve had a successful capital campaign, which raised some $6 million. Of this, we have only about $600,000 in outstanding pledges. As we collect these pledges, we will be able to meet our current obligations and continue the work so as to complete our magnificent, future house of worship. Meanwhile, those who have made gifts or who have pledged and who have completed their pledges, are invited to consider making an additional gift. This will be helpful to the project. We thank those who have heeded our invitation and who have extended their support. In the end, you are investing in the future, not only of the Cathedral building, but of the Faith, as Orthodoxy makes firm footing, in the heart of our great City. If you wish to discuss your support of this sacred undertaking, we invite you to speak with Tom Nuris, our Capital Campaign Committee Chair, or Father Stephen, our Dean: This email address is being protected from spambots.
