Children & Volunteers in the Cathedral Nursery

We welcome you and your child to the Cathedral.                        On Sunday mornings, nursery care is available during the        10:15 am service for babies through age 4. We believe it is important to love and nurture the spiritual growth of the youngest children. While in the nursery, children are cared for by Jennifer Payne, our child care leader, as well as volunteers from the Cathedral community.  Children engage with Gospel lessons and activities, listen to music, and most importantly, play!

All children are also invited to join their families in worship if that is your preference. There are activity bags available in the narthex, and you'll find  this is an community that embraces children in worship.  Additionally, you can bring your child to the nursery at the start of the service and pick them up to join you at the Eucharist. 


There is a comfort room towards the back of the Sanctuary behind St Mary's chapel if your child should need some space during the service. There are chairs for adults and quiet books and toys for your child to play with while you can still hear and participate in the service.



Please contact our Children's Minister Hillary for more information about Safeguarding God's Children Trainingif you are interested in serving as a volunteer in the nursery, or for any other information, questions or comments.


Outreach Opportunity

Children decorated back pack tags as we donate back packs filled with school supplies for students at Campbell Park Elementary.


Gospel Lesson & Activity: Welcoming Cup. "Give a cup of water to someone who is thirsty..."

Children in the nursery followed with the Gospel Lesson: Matthew 10:40-42 and made a Welcoming Cup to share water, and the Love of Christ, with a friend or family member.

Gospel Lesson & Activity: My Yoke is Easy. "Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest."

Children decorated bags to show how Christ, and the Body of Christ help us to carry what is heavy in our life. Matthew 11: 16-19, 25-30
