“Ascribe to the LORD the honor due his Name; bring offerings and come into his courts.”
In Spring 2023, we announced a special offering for specific items we both needed to purchase and hoped to purchase for our new building. Nothing could have prepared us for the generous response we received from the congregation and friends of St. David's! Thanks to the support of dozens of households, we have received donations for over four dozen furnishings, fixtures, and vestments, along with two dozen trees.
Below is an up-to-date selection of items that are available for donation. Your ongoing contributions remain as important as ever as we near the end of construction. If you do not see an item that fits your budget or an item of particular interest to you, please consider a general gift to the project in any amount. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
Holly | $500 each | 35 available
Live Oak | $1,000 each | 5 available
These trees will be planted around our new property and include a memorial stone, if desired.
The following items will not be purchased without a donation.
Pulpit Hangings | $2,700 each
Lenten Dossal Curtain | $3,860
This austere curtain would hang above our altar during the season of Lent, replacing our year-round blue curtain and serving as a backdrop for our altar cross and candlesticks.
Altar Window | $165,630 includes delivery and installation
The inspiration for this window comes from an ancient hymn we recite in Morning Prayer called the Te Deum. The hymn is set around the throne of God, who is praised by apostles, prophets, martyrs, and the whole host of heaven.
Drawing from these categories, the figures surrounding Christ on the throne are Peter and Paul (Apostles); Moses, Elijah, and John the Baptist (Prophets); Perpetua and Felicity (third century Roman martyrs); the Virgin Mary, St. David of Wales, and St. Non (St. David’s mother).
The donor(s) who contribute to this window will be given the opportunity to select the two remaining saints in the window.
This window was designed by J. Wippell & Co. before the company closed their doors in 2023. Founded in 1789, Wippell's also designed the windows in our current Nave and Narthex. This window will proudly feature their logo as the last stained glass commission they designed.
