I hope that you and your loved ones are healthy and safe during these uncertain times. Our Cathedral staff and faculty send along our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to you as we define a new normal together.
Our Cathedral community, like so many others, has experienced great challenges due to the coronavirus – but we cannot succumb to them. For our students, Cathedral is home – and our commitment, now more than ever, is to be fully prepared to welcome our students’ back home. The hardships our families are facing are unlike any they have ever seen. At Cathedral, the most important thing we can do is adhere to our mission, fight for our students, and ensure our families know that Cathedral will remain a beacon of hope. This promise, this commitment, is one we make with confidence because of you – our donors.
Prior to our school closure, I met Elijah as he was coming out of our guidance office. His smile filled the halls. Elijah, with dreams to become an engineer, had just found out he received a four-year scholarship to Wentworth Institute of Technology. His life changed forever in that moment. That same day, Cathedral received a phone call from an advocate notifying us that two of our students had been displaced from their home. Paying tuition was no longer possible. Our Board of Trustees, without hesitation, demonstrated our commitment to mission – the two students were part of our Cathedral family, and no life challenge would change that. A tale of two stories, but both made possible because of the support of donors like you. Now, more than ever, our students need Cathedral.
Our commitment, through the most challenging of times, remains to our students. We will double down on our efforts and care, and stay firm to our mission. Our goal is to raise $150,000 by the end of June. Together, we can show our students that as a community, we will stand with them through any crisis.
We understand that you may be facing financial challenges in the midst of this pandemic, but we are asking you to go above and beyond and unite with us in the mission of educating our children. Without you, there would be no Cathedral!
You remain in our prayers, and with the grace of God, our Cathedral family will emerge stronger than ever.
Head of School
P.S. Your support now will not only impact our students, but will encourage our teachers who have so compassionately been there for our students during our school closure. They are the primary reason teaching and learning has remained strong at Cathedral and we’re so grateful for their incredible work!
