Friends of St. Aelred

The Friends of St. Aelred is a group of LGBT persons and supporters that strive for social justice, fellowship, and service to the community. Our mission is to love and serve each other, respecting all persons as diverse creatures of God. The Friends of St. Aelred are involved in outreach, evangelism, and hospitality. The ministry regularly participates in outreach efforts with Resurrection House and AIDS Association of Pinellas, coordinating the annual Giving Tree, AIDS Walk, and Brighter Seasons for Children. The Friends engage in evangelism to the LGBT community, leading the Cathedral’s annual participation in St. Pete Pride. Additionally, the Friends of St. Aelred host regular hospitality events, including brunches, holiday events, and socials. The Friends of St. Aelred meets the second Wednesday of each month at 7pm at the Cathedral. Everybody is welcome to share in this vibrant ministry.
