masterpiece of Britain's most famous architect Sir Christopher Wren.
Behind the scenes, the cost of caring for St Paul's and continuing to deliver our central ministry and work is enormous and the generosity of
our supporters is critical.

Scenes of sunshine and joy as women celebrate 20 years of priesthood
06 May 2014
The sun shone throughout the day as hundreds of women priests and their supporters came to London to celebrate 20
years since the ordination of women.
It is thought more than 3,000 people marched through the streets of the capital from Westminster Abbey to St Paul's to mark the anniversary of
one of the most significant events in the Church of England's recent history.
And in his sermon to a packed Cathedral, the Archbishop of Canterbury apologised for the hurt that had been caused by the Church in and before
1994. Justin Welby said: "As a representative of that institution, I want to thank those here today whose costly loyalty, whose scars, make
this celebration possible, and to say personally how I grieve that it cost so much, to apologise for my own part in that hurt."
