Cathedral Children's Ministries 

Please contact Children's Minister: Hillary 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. 


Children's Chapel

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.

Children's Eucharist

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.

Messy Church!

Join us for Messy Church at the Cathedral!

Messy Church is an intergenerational family gathering involving worship, crafts, music, and storytelling. The fun starts at 5:45 pm with a shared supper and wraps up at 7:30 pm.

Messy Church is on the second Thursday of the month (Sept 13, Oct 11, Nov 8 and Dec 13). This year we will move through the seasons of the church year, exploring stories that help us see with God’s eyes. Don’t miss a minute of Messy Church. C’mon, let’s get messy!
