Building Update: In the Home Stretch for the Exterior!

Building Update: In the Home Stretch for the Exterior!

Getting there and, quite honestly, we can’t wait for it to finish. However, with the current building boom in San Francisco, the Contractor is having trouble getting subs to do the work. We’re in the home stretch, though for, 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 also about a month away from receiving a Conditional Use Permit to enable us to secure a third-party operator to run the parking. As for the interior: we hope to begin the upper wall installation by the end of 2017. However, in order for us to continue, we need your prayers and your continued financial support. As noted, some $4 million is needed for the interior (note the above laser graphic). Those parishioners and friends of the Cathedral who have made pledges to the Capital Campaign, but who have outstanding pledge balances, are being asked to make good on your pledges by the end of 2017. We have about $600,000 in outstanding pledges, which is a significant sum. It’s about 10% of the total amount of pledges to the Capital Campaign. Those with outstanding pledges have been notified, by snail mail statements and, in most cases, also by e mail. Members of the Parish Council followed up with phone calls, offering thanks and encouragement. Let’s all join together and finish what we’ve begun.

Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God.

John 4:7
