Christmas on the River

In recent years, about this time of the year, members of the our congregation get busy with their knitting and baking. It's all for Christmas on the River, a project of the Seamen's Church Institute that the cathedral supports. The ministry provides Christmas gift boxes to the men and women who work the tugboats on our inland waterways that provide so many of the resources on which our society depends. The gift boxes contain hand knitted scarves, home baked cookies, other small gift items and holiday greetings. In recent years, cathedral volunteers have been packing hundreds of boxes for distribution. For more information, contact John Mendez.
