Cathedral Children's Ministries
Please contact Children's Minister: Emily with questions, ideas, comments.
The Cathedral offers a place for children. On Sunday mornings, children may be in worship with their families, or join in Children's Chapel worship. In the Narthex, look for a bookshelf: inside you'll find coloring books and crayons for children to take into worship and to return after the service.
On Sunday mornings at 10:15, Children are welcome in the Children's Chapel for their worship.
Children's Chapel offers a child-centered worship space on Sunday mornings during the 10:15 service. Children will participate in a liturgy designed for them, where they can learn the rhythms of Episcopal worship. They hear the Gospel lesson for that Sunday from a child-geared translation: God's Word: My Voice. Lay Leaders follow a rhythm of: welcoming activity, liturgy, Gospel reading, and closing prayers.
Every 2nd Sunday in the Children's Chapel, children are invited to participate in Children's Eucharist: an integral heart of the Episcopal liturgy and life. They remain in Children's Chapel for the entirety of the 10:15 service and join their families at coffee hour.
