What Will Be Your Labor of Love?
Our relationship with neighborhood organizations is as vital to our Cathedral community as it is to Albuquerque at large. We aim to be a recognized center of support and care as well as of art and music. Our ability to be this depends on the participation of both lay volunteers and Cathedral staff. Prayerfully consider participating in one or more of these community outreach ministries.
