Margaret Ann Cash was awarded the Bishop Cross in the 2009 Diocesan Convention
Presentation of the Bishop Cross by The Right Reverend Mark S. Sisk Fifteenth Bishop of New York
In the Book of Proverbs we are reminded that “.. .. it is the God fearing woman who is honored. Extol her for the fruit of all her toil, and let her labors bring her honor in the city gate.” (31:30-31) We bring now to Margaret Cash the honor she justly deserves because of the fidelity to faith she has consistently displayed. As the granddaughter of on Episcopal Priest, she inherited and modeled longevity and dependability as distinctive characteristics of her personality. She has been a leader in her parish of St. Andrew’s Church, Harlem, for over forty years, and is credited with the parochial restoration of the Episcopal Church Women Chapter and many years of service as a member of the Vestry, in addition to several important parish committees, organizations and projects. This dedication to the ECW and its ministry led to her extensive involvement on the diocesan and national levels, having filled a distinguished term of six years as the President of the Diocesan ECW as well at having been recognized by receiving the Distinguished Award at the national Triennial Meeting in 2006. This labor of prayer prompted her participation in two of the annual conferences sponsored by the Anglican Women Empowerment Organization, in conjunction with the United Nations Committee on the Status of Women. In our diocesan life she has distinguished herself by participation on the Commission on Ministry, the Congregational Life & Mission Commission, the Global Women’s Task Force and the ECW of Province Two. Prior to her retirement she served as the Assistant Director of the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program of the Community Service Society of New York . She currently enjoys life with her husband and three daughters, continues her work as a member of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and serves as an Adjunct Lecturer and Faculty Advisor in the Masters Degree Program at the Hunter College School of Social Work. Her labors have indeed brought her honor in the city gate.
Therefore in recognition and gratitude for her service to her community, her parish and her diocese offered to the glory of God, we, on this 21st ds of November 2009, in the twelfth year of our consecration do award her the Bishop’s cross.
