Social Services Ministry
Our Social Service Ministry is responsible for providing emergency assistance of food, clothing, and community resource referral services to families experiencing hardship. The Social Service Ministry operates a Food and Clothing Closet which includes baby items/products, children’s toys, books, school supplies, and adult toiletries. The focus of this ministry works under the umbrella of the Deacons’ Ministry and provide the necessary secondary method for assisting families needing assistance when not applicable for benevolence services.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
By partnering with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Golden Gate Cathedral is associated with one of the world’s most respected health care charities, helping to raise the money needed to fund leading-edge research. The mission of St. Jude children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric, catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of the founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion, or a family’s ability to pay.
Golden Gate Cathedral partners with Compassion International, the world’s leading authority in holistic child development through sponsorship, to sponsor 15 children. Our goal is to release them from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty.
Compassion revolutionized the fight against global poverty by working exclusively with the church to release children from poverty so that they may become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.
