6. How can I give money to the Cathedral? (Emailed by someone who attended St John's for many years, has now returned to the US and remembers the Cathedral with fondness)
You can always just mail a cheque to the Cathedral office main address. However, Hong Kong being the financial wonder that it is, you can also transfer money directly to St John's Cathedral Account number: 004-002-245348-005 HSBC Ltd, 1 Queen's Road Central, Hong Kong.
Another option for US citizens is to make contributions to the Episcopal Church in the USA, and have them forward the money to St. John's and your contribution is then deductible on your US taxes. Please email us if you are interested in doing this.
