Salutations! (a summer letter from Youth Minister Justin)
Greetings from the Children & Youth Ministries at the Cathedral Church of St. Peter. We have enjoyed getting to know some of you over the past few months, and we hope to meet the rest of you soon. We wanted to update you on a few recent events and to let you know about up-coming ideas.
We had our first Instameet in June at the Cathedral before the Burns Friday Night Movie. We shared a meal and ideas with the youth to explore plans for the summer.
Some of the most prominent ideas for events are:
cooking-lessons and demos (Parents, can you believe it?)
just about anything related to DaySpring.
We also discussed various outreach and ministry options like:
community gardening: how about St Pete Eco Garden?
volunteering at the St. Pete Free Clinic, Campbell Park Elementary, and other local partners
hosting fundraising dinners
"Canoeucharist" (a canoe trip/clean-up mashup with communion)
We would also like to keep an eye out for events like:
Christmas Pageant date tba
In the meantime, Emily and I are happy to meet with youth at the Cathedral most afternoons Monday - Friday. And let us know about upcoming games or competitions that you have; we'd love to support you and your interests.
