Youth Christian Education
CHURCH CAMP PARTY: Saturday, December 6th from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. Free transportation to/from Camp Bloomington,
which is the site of the Episcopal Church Camp each summer. No cost to attend. Events include: Freeze Out Hayride,
Indoor Swimming, Crafts & Games, Roast Marshmallows, Sugar Cookies, Brats/Dogs/Chili. Contact Katy Cave at 217-8167158 to register. So far there are three vans and ten kids with chaperones going.
Plans are already being made for the children to participate in the Family Mass on Christmas Eve. They are practicing two
songs "He Came Down" and "Children Go Where I Send Thee". Please consider attending the Family Mass on
Christmas Eve at 5:30 p.m. to see how their hard work has paid off.
Confirmation will start in January. Parents are asked to contact Katy Cave at [email protected] or by telephone at
816-7158 (cell) to let her know whether or not your child will be attending confirmation classes. To qualify, a child must be
at least in the 5th grade, but generally confirmation begins when a child is in 6th or 7th grade. The confirmation class is for a
year and a half, so the child's confirmation will not be until Easter 2016.
Gospel Text of the Month
Sunday, December 7th (The Second Sunday of Advent): Mark 1: 1 – 8 Mark makes no mention at all of the
circumstances of Jesus’ birth, or of the visit of the angel Gabriel to Mary (which appears in Luke), of the flight of the Holy
Family into Egypt (which we find in Matthew), or of the return of the family to Nazareth (also in Matthew). Instead, in the
first eight verses of his gospel account, Mark begins by recounting the ministry of John the Baptist, who prepared the way –
as Isaiah had foretold – for the coming of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
Sunday, December 14th (The Third Sunday of Advent: John 1: 6 – 8, 19 – 28 On this Sunday, we hear the Fourth
Gospel’s account of John the Baptist’s witness to Jesus. The gospel writer tells us that John the Baptist “came as a
witness to the light (who is Jesus),” adding that he “was not the light, but came to bear witness to the light.” A bit later on in
our reading, the priests and Levites who had come to seek him out ask him, “Are you the Christ?”, and his answer was,
“No.” “Are you Elijah?” they asked, and he would answer, “No.” “Are you the Prophet?” they asked, and he would answer,
Sunday, December 21st (The Fourth Sunday of Advent): Luke 1: 26 – 38 The angel Gabriel’s visitation to the Blessed
Virgin Mary is recounted to us in this Sunday’s gospel reading. In response to the news that she was to bear a son, she
asked the angel, “How can this be, since I have no husband?” The angel’s reply shows that this miraculous birth will be by
the power of God, acting through the work of the Holy Spirit. In reply, Mary becomes the perfect example of willingness to
do God’s will as she says, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord, let it be to me according to your word.”
Wednesday, December 24th (The Eve of the Nativity): Luke 2: 1 – 14 The very familiar account of Joseph and Mary’s
trip from Nazareth to Bethlehem is set before us. When they arrive, they find that there is no room for them anywhere in
town, and Mary is about to give birth to her firstborn child. So, they find themselves in very humble circumstances, staying
that night with the animals in a manger. Soon, angels tell shepherds that a wonderful birth has taken place in nearby
Bethlehem: The long-awaited Savior, who is Christ the Lord, has been born. They make their way into town to witness
God’s intervention in human affairs.
Thursday, December 25th (The Feast of the Nativity): John 1: 1 – 14 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word
was with God, and the Word was God.” This opening verse of the Fourth Gospel has earth-shaking implications, for in the
succeeding verses of this Prologue (John 1: 1 – 18) to John’s gospel account, we will find that Jesus Christ is this Word,
the One who was with God in the beginning of all things, the One who is the Light that has come into the world. Preachers
and theologians have suggested that we could spend a good bit of our Christian lives unpacking the importance of these
verses alone.
Sunday, December 28th (The First Sunday after Christmas): John 1: 1 – 18 We get a second chance to hear John’s
marvelous Prologue on this Sunday morning, except that the entire eighteen verses are set before us in this second
hearing of it. In the final four verses which are added on this occasion, the gospel writer will tell us that “the Word (Jesus
Christ) became flesh and dwelt among us.” (The Greek word that is usually translated as “among” literally means “tented”.
Put another way, Eugene Peterson, who is the creator of a paraphrased New Testament known as “The Message” says
that “Jesus moved into our neighborhood.”) Jesus Christ’s arrival, the writer goes on to say, is “full of grace and truth.”

Women’s Group
This month’s meeting is our Annual Holiday Social on Tuesday, December 2nd from 5:00 to
7:00 p.m. at It’s All About Wine, located in The Grand Plaza Mall, 1305 Wabash Ave., Suite M.
The mall is in Jerome between South Park Ave. and Fillmore St., across the street from the
Sonic Drive-In restaurant.
Last year’s social was so popular we decided to do it again. Wine varieties will be available for
tasting. Non-alcoholic beverages will also be available. The cost is $10.00/person to
purchase the wines for our tasting. You are encouraged to bring appetizers and guests. The
more the merrier.
If you are planning on attending, please contact Becky Miller at [email protected] or by telephone at 217-4150441.
The Hanging of the Greens will be Sunday, December 21th, immediately after the 10:30 a.m. service.
Interested members of the congregation who attend the 8:00 a.m. service are invited to return to the Cathedral
at 11:45 a.m. A clipboard sign-up sheet will be available in the café during Advent. A light lunch for volunteers
will be served at 1:00 p.m. in the café.
Also, a donation for the Christmas flowers and Christmas trees can be made using the form found in the
Sunday bulletins during Advent, designated:1) in thanksgiving for, 2) in memory of, 3) in honor of.

Christmas for the Smith Family
Each Sunday during the Prayers of the People, we pray for the Smith family, our missionaries in Chile. To make
their Christmas more special and to let them know we appreciate their
Heidi Smith
sacrifice helping those less fortunate, the Cathedral Church of St. Paul
always gives them a monetary gift.
From November 2nd - December 14th, we will be asking for donations
from the congregation.
Please keep these thoughts in mind as you budget to help with this
worthy cause: If 20 members of the congregation give $10 each, then we
can give the Smith family a Christmas gift of $200.
Fall Clean-up Work Day
Thank you to the nineteen volunteers who participated in the Fall Clean-up Work Day. Your hard work paid off.
We managed to clean the Canterbury House attic and basement and do some much needed grounds clean-up.
There is still more work that needs to be done, but that has been put on hold for another work day. If you were
unable to help with the Fall Clean-up, consider joining us next time!
Now remind me again, whose trees are they?
In the Parish
Our pews and floors need cleaning and polishing badly. Would you be willing to donate two
hours, from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. to help?
Please bring your own rubber gloves and additional rags. Other supplies will be provided.
Ideally, four teams of two or three people are needed. A sign-up sheet is in the café. This is
a stinky job (pewee - no pun intended), but someone has to do it.
Lincoln Funeral Re-enactment Committee
Following his death by assassination, the body of Abraham Lincoln was
brought by funeral train, accompanied by dignitaries, from Washington,
D.C. to its final resting place in Lincoln's hometown of Springfield,
Illinois. The train left Washington, D.C., on April 21, 1865 at 12:30 p.m.
and traveled 1,654 miles to Springfield, arriving on May 3, 1865.
Several stops were made along the way where Lincoln's body lay in
state. The train retraced the route Lincoln had traveled to Washington
as the president-elect on his way to his first inauguration, and millions of
Americans viewed the train along the route. Lincoln's wife Mary Todd
Lincoln remained at the White House because she was too distraught to
make the trip; she returned to Illinois about one month later.
Lincoln was interred at Oak Ridge Cemetery in Springfield. The site of the Lincoln Tomb, now owned and
managed as a state historic site, is marked by a 117-foot tall granite obelisk surmounted with several bronze
statues of Lincoln, constructed by 1874. Mary Todd Lincoln and three of his four sons are also buried there.
Because of the length of the funeral, historians have called this event "The Greatest Funeral in the History of the
United States"
To recognize the 200th anniversary of this historic event, the 2015 Lincoln Funeral Coalition was organized with
the mission to educate, coordinate and promote the accurate and dignified reenactment of the historic
anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s funeral procession in Springfield. Events are planned from Friday, May 1,
2015 through Sunday, May 3, 2015. It is expected to draw thousands of visitors to Springfield.
The Cathedral Church of St. Paul wants to be an integral part of these events. The calendar is filling fast so
immediate action is needed to identify the Cathedral’s participation. At the first meeting of the Cathedral’s
Funeral Re-enactment Committee, discussions included:
Educational presentations, such as the “History of Mary Todd’s Family in St. Paul’s Church”,
including a list of possible presenters;
Bell ringing opportunities during the Lincoln procession since St. Paul’s bell is the oldest in Springfield;
Connecting with the visitors who come to the presentations in order to promote the Cathedral;
Preparing the Canterbury House to display the historic records, identify rooms to be used and
determining appropriate decorating;
Long-term uses of the Canterbury House to make it a unique place for the congregation and visitors;
Possibility of the establishment of a small “gift shop” to include religious items and other items available
to visitors who make donations.
If you are interested in participating on this committee, please contact Gary Kerr at 522-2244 (o); 529-3546 (h);
or [email protected] The next meeting is Thursday, December 4th at 7:00 p.m.
Food Ministries Planning

food item to pass on to Contact Ministries Women’s & Children’s Shelter. For more

Holiday Food Basket Challenge
On Sunday, November 9th, after the 10:30 service, the food donations for the Holiday Food Baskets for The
Senior Services of Central Illinois were put into boxes and decorated paper bags. In support of that effort the

Food Bank Feasibility Committee
The Food Bank Feasibility Committee had its first meeting. Currently, there seems to be a need for an
afternoon facility providing paper products and personal hygiene items. The committee, led by David
Laubersheimer, Chairman, hopes to have a full report in early spring to include start-up costs and continuing
operational costs plus other details.
Anyone interested in participating is invited to attend the next meeting on December 3rd, at 7:00 p.m. in the
café. If you have any questions, please contact David Laubersheimer at [email protected] or by
telephone at 638-1810.
As we begin Advent, we are celebrating the “coming” of our Messiah. Advent is a time of expectation and
preparation for Jesus’ arrival. Therefore, it may seem odd thinking about the Last Supper at a time when we
are supposed to be preparing for Jesus’ birth. Many consider His birth the beginning, but in my mind it is His
death that is the beginning . With His death we were given the greatest gift anyone could ever hope for. We
were given eternal life.
The last meal Jesus had with His apostles before His arrest and subsequent crucifixion was when He prepared
them to do what needed to be done on His behalf for all mankind. It was the event that prepared the disciples
to go out in the world.
Most churches have stewardship campaigns at this time of year so they too can prepare for what Jesus asked
us to do on His behalf. It represents the beginning of a church’s fiscal year. A pledge is not a guarantee the
funds will be available when needed, but it provides a direction for planning just as Jesus provided a direction to
His disciples.
What is the purpose of a stewardship pledge? Stewardship pledges are the food, as in the Last Supper, that
nourish a church. Without pledges it is impossible for a church to fulfill Jesus’ command to be God’s hands,
mouth, and feet in this world - the body of Christ. The church does the things Jesus would do if He were here
physically on earth. This includes not only sharing the gospel, but also providing for physical needs (food,
clothing, shelter) to those asking for its help. The church is us, Jesus’ disciples.
The congregation of the Cathedral Church of St. Paul has a long, consistent history of never meeting its basic
operating expenses through pledges. It resorted to using its endowment fund, asking generous parishioners to
make up the deficit or by having fundraisers. If the congregation stood by the Cathedral financially then
fundraisers could be used for what every other church uses them - to provide to the less fortunate.
When I sold tickets for raffles or Fall Festivals, I can’t tell you how often I was asked about the cause the event
was supporting. Some how “keeping the lights on” did not sound like a worthy enough cause to most people.
Maybe with enough pledges the next fundraiser can be for “feeding the hungry”. You may be surprised how
successful it will be. Anyway, that is the reason every other church has a fundraiser, except St. Paul’s.
Stewardship means giving back some of God’s Gifts. If you are willing to make
the commitment then it becomes a way of life.
As of November 25, 2014, 56 pledge cards have been returned for a total pledge of
$153,782, significantly less than what is needed to meet expenses.
Make a Commitment of Time and Talent
Stewardship does not only mean giving your financial support to the Cathedral. It also means sharing of your
time and talent. If you cannot financially support the Cathedral as much as you would like then consider making
up the difference with your time and talent.
Volunteers are needed for the Cathedral office, altar party/ushers (both services), fundraising committees, outreach ministries, Sunday school teachers and other committees.
If you are interested in helping or have some special skill the Cathedral can use, please contact the office or
complete the commitment form found in your pledge envelopes and put it in the collection plate.
The Friar’s Pen
(A monthly column by Fr. Gene Tucker, Interim Provost, AKA “Friar Tuck”)
“Why am I a Christian?”
Has that question ever passed through your mind? I will admit this question has gone through my
thinking and reflecting many more times than once. Perhaps there are a number of different answers
to the question. Some of those answers might be:
1. I was raised in a Christian household, and so have never known any other way to believe. (I had a
seminary professor who called such persons “First-born Christians”, for they never knew a time in their
lives when they didn’t know and didn’t believe.)
2. I came to faith in Christ at a mature age. Sometimes, this answer emerges as one reflects on a
time when there was no faith in Christ, or when other religious options were explored. (That same
seminary professor called such persons “Second-born Christians”, for they had come to a declaration
of faith at such an age that they could answer for themselves.)
3. The Christian faith makes the most sense to me, compared to all the other religious options
In this month’s column, allow me to expand on an answer to question #3, above…
I like the Christian faith option because I am, at heart, a selfish and self-centered individual. (OK, I will
admit God has been working on this aspect of my default attitudes and behaviors...pray for me, for I
am a work in progress!)
Being the sort of person I have just admitted to you that I am, I like the fact God decided to put me at
the very center of His attention. (OK, once again, speaking the truth in love, God has also put every
one of us at the very center of His attention.)
I like the fact God decided you and I were so important He would take the initiative to come in the
person of Jesus Christ to show us the way to the Father. I like the fact God didn’t come among us full
of pomp and circumstance. I like the fact God came in the person of Jesus Christ in humility. I like the
fact Jesus Christ set aside His divine prerogatives to take on our humanity.
The only conclusion I can come to in all of this is to accept the idea God seems to think we human
beings are so important God decided to send the very best…He sent Himself to reach out to us, to
take the initiative to show us the way to the Father, in the work of Jesus Christ.
This is the very heart of the message of Christmas.
Thanks be to God for the high value He has placed on your life and mine. We matter to God, a whole
lot. This fact alone should be cause for us to celebrate the greatest joy we can ever imagine.
Faithfully in Christ’s service and yours,
Fr. Gene Tucker+
Chapter Notes
A Summary of the Meeting of Wednesday, November 19, 2014
Among the items discussed at the Chapter meeting were the following:
Treasurer Betty Vrooman reported the Cathedral’s available Cash On Hand had grown significantly
since the October report, due in part to continued budget savings in expenditures, an increase in contributions,
and income from fundraisers.
Buildings and Grounds Chair Eileen Straeter-Kerr presented the Chapter with:
a need to replace the water circulating pump for the system which supplies hot water to
the heat registers in the Education Wing. Chapter approved replacing the pump.
Trimming the branches of the large pin oak tree across the alley from the Atrium entrance
was discussed, as the branches are now making contact with the Parish Hall. The
Diocese, on whose property the tree sits, will investigate trimming the branches.
Insulation for the attic of the Canterbury House was considered. The Trustees of the
Canterbury House recommend batting-type insulation be considered.
The presence of bats in the Great Hall was discussed. Since bats are a protected
species, a special firm must be engaged to safely relocate these intruders, which had
caused a disturbance during a recent Springfield Choral Society rehearsal.
A bid for snow removal from Brown’s was approved for the winter months. Clearing side
walks and application of salt will be undertaken by volunteers. In exchange for the
trimming of the pin oak tree, the Cathedral will ensure the Diocese’s sidewalks are cleared
this winter.
Planning for Christmas flower donations was also discussed.
Bishop’s Warden David Laubersheimer reported on a recent meeting of the Food Bank Feasibility
Committee, and reported the next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, December 3rd at 7:00 p.m.
Provost’s Warden John O’Conner reported on the efforts that have been undertaken to secure nominees for Chapter elections at the Annual Meeting in January. In addition, he said a recommendation had been
made to inaugurate a system of rotating representatives to diocesan Synod which is scheduled in October.
Fr. Tucker reported a baptism is scheduled during the 10:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday, December 21st. He
also provided a rundown of December’s schedule of events.
During Old Business:
The Stewardship Committee reported, to date, fifteen households that pledged in 2014
have yet to do so for 2015. The “Friends of St. Paul” campaign has received two
new contributions for its campaign; yet still well short of the much needed 100 donors.
During New Business:
The Lincoln Funeral Re-enactment Planning Committee reported on plans to conduct a
bell ringing during the funeral re-enactment on Sunday, May 3, 2015. Ways of engaging
young people in the community to be a part of the bell ringing team were discussed.
Fr. Tucker reported on the availability of black bunting which could be used to decorate
the Cathedral’s buildings, and on the availability of a 36 star U. S. flag, which is being
made by the same company that created the flag which was used for Lincoln’s funeral in
Gary Kerr presented a plan to create a Cathedral Roof Fund Trust.
Claire Ribelin made a presentation about School Reach/Group Cast Messaging System
with which she is familiar. This program would allow the Cathedral to reach members who
do not have email or internet access.
The Chapter’s next meeting will take place on Wednesday, December 17th at 7:00 p.m. in the Café. Chapter
meetings are open to observation by any member of the Cathedral
