With the Millennium Tower in place, and major repair works recently carried out, the Cathedral is an indisputable icon of Suffolk. The Cathedral remains, for the County and community, the natural gathering centre, where major anniversaries can be commemorated and national events celebrated. In times of tragedy or misfortune, too, the Cathedral, can respond sensitively and act as a focal point. The Cathedral and its ministry, guided by the Bishop, can now reach out to all parts of Suffolk and its peoples. The Foundation’s role is to provide the financing to enable the Cathedral to fulfil a greater role, with others, in meeting the needs of the county. The Foundation is able to support the Cathedral and its service to the wider community thanks to the generosity of individuals who feel passionate about the cultural, spiritual and community life of our county and our country.
