As Episcopalians, we believe that the mission of the church is to restore all people to unity with God and to each other in Jesus Christ. People work at this mission in their homes, neighborhoods, schools, workplaces and communities. Some aspects of mission we undertake together as a congregation.
The Cathedral’s weekly Food Pantry, the partnership with our local schools, our engagement in assisting Erie’s homeless population, and hosting outreach dinners are just a few of the ways we are reaching out to our neighbors in need. In covid we have done numerous collections for area agencies, been involved in BLM marches, and delivered meals to hospital workers.
Most of our engagement with the city is done with St. Mark’s Episcopal Church. Together we engage with our community partners to make a difference in Erie.
