This Summer, Project 33701 ventured into the community by participating in Saturday Morning Market. Across the street from the Cathedral, WIlliams Park hosts the Saturday Morning Market during hit hot summer days, providing a great outlet for St.Pete residents to pick up fresh produce, eat delicious food, sample and purchase the arts, crafts, and wares of merchants, and this Summer, make free crafts and art projects.
"It was a great joy to be out with our neighbors, and making the Summer Market something more enjoyable for kids and their families," said Tessa Burnsed, Family Ministry Coordinator at the Cathedral. "It was also a great opportunity for me to get to know the families of the Cathedral as we prepare to kick off a whole new line-up of programs and ministries for kids of all ages in September."
Pete's Corner was made possible by the many people who gave up time on their Saturday mornings to be in the park. OVer 20 Cathedral members came to Pete's Corner over the summer, and those 20 people served over 200 kids between June and August. That's not even counting the relationships built with parents, grandparents, and the vendors of the Summer Market.
Pete's Corner was such a success that the Cathedral has been invited to participate in the regular Saturday Morning Market when it picks back up in October. One Saturday a month, we will set up and be prepared to create with the children and families of St. Pete. Won't you consider joining your neighbors in the cooler months of the year on a Saturday morning? Contact Canon Katie if you would like to serve at Pete's Corner.
