Hi friends! The Thresholds class here at the Cathedral is hosting a fundraiser for the Navajo people, a culture that is very close to our heart. Our class consists of the high school youth who participate in events regularly together. We would like to give everyone a bit more background information about our fundraiser. A group of us traveled to Arizona this past summer to visit Navajoland to do service work, but our trip ended up being so much more than waking up in the morning and cleaning up the church’s cemetery. Everyone in the group was so immersed in the Navajo culture that it was difficult not to fall in love with it. We had the opportunity to get to know some of their people and hear their stories. Their passion, love and gratefulness for not only their culture, but anyone who wants to learn about it, is unmatched.
Unfortunately, the Navajos are struggling during this pandemic. They have a higher rate of COVID-19 per capita compared to any other place in this country. They also do not have the same resources that the rest of the country does, and not being able to regularly work is affecting them greatly. When we all heard this, our group knew that we needed to help them in some way. The Cathedral will be running a fundraiser to donate to the Navajo people through Good Shephard Mission, one of the Episcopal Churches in Navajoland. We are asking that you donate as little or as much as you can for us to reach our goal of $1,000.00. If you donate $20.00 or more, you will receive a scented Navajo-made bar of soap with your donation. While we were in Arizona, we were fortunate enough to be able to tour and learn about the factory where the soaps are made, and both the process and products are absolutely delightful! We thank you all so much for helping the Navajo people. Every dollar counts!
Checks can be made payable to the Cathedral with "Navajo Land" in the memo line or donate using the link below. Donate
