Cathedral Gardens is a non-profit, senior independent-living complex located next to St. Matthew’s Episcopal Cathedral. It has provided low cost housing since 1980 for those 62+ or disabled.
The outgoing champion, Dusty Matthews, chose this as her ministry after her mother had passed away. She was separated from her mother in her last year of life by distance and depended on the kindness of others, most of them coming from her mother’s home church. She says, “By serving the residents of Cathedral Gardens, I can give back just a little of what was shared with me and my mother. My service there has resulted in untold and countless blessings in my life.”
The Church of the Incarnation volunteers organize events to engage the residents and to provide much needed friendship and interaction.
Participate in the Spring and Fall color planting in the garden.
Assist in the planning and decorating for seasonal events (Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, and July 4th).
Participate in Bingo Nights and Sing-a-Longs.
Prepare food for seasonal events.
25 people are needed to assist in organizing and running events throughout the year. (Time requirements vary.)
