Our cathedral community has a long history of community engagement and outreach, including helping to found the United Way – a worldwide united campaign that benefits health and welfare agencies. There are numerous ways for our members to serve both within our walls and out in our neighborhood and Denver-metro communities.




Opportunities to serve at the cathedral range from assisting with our formation activities, standing on a committee to help maintain our building, to serving during services as an acolyte or verger. We welcome all who are interested in serving at Saint John’s or with our members in our wider community, and we’re always happy to help you find the best fit.

Faith in Action

Faith in Action (FIA) is a standing commission of Saint John’s Cathedral. This group of justice-seeking Christians provide leadership for Saint John’s Cathedral in the three areas of service, education, and advocacy.

Serve on a Committee

Arts & Architecture

Our Arts & Architecture Committee works with the dean and vestry to ensure our building is well maintained, accessible to everyone, and a beautiful space for all to enjoy.

For more information, please contact the Arts & Architecture interim chair, Rebecca Richardson ().

Grants Committee

Saint John’s Cathedral clergy and vestry are proud to charge the Grant Committee with giving 5% of plate and pledge revenues to organizations that serve the community outside our walls. Each fall, the committee reviews grant proposals on how they align with the mission, ministry, and values of the cathedral as well as the priorities set by the Faith in Action Commission. These grants are given to charitable organizations exempt under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) to further the ministry of Saint John’s Cathedral.

For more information on 2023 grants, please contact the Grants Committee chair, Anne Enderby () or click here.
