Stewardship update
There has been a positive response to our recent update on the Cathedral's                            The Fourth Sunday of Advent
finances and Stewardship giving. We have new givers by standing order,
and some existing givers have increased their contribution. Overall, this will give
the Cathedral an extra £5,000 per year, plus Gift Aid. In addition, one-off

those who have given or increased their giving. If you are still considering your
response, forms are available on the table at the West end of the Cathedral.
