Child and Youth Education

websiteWe believe that the faith journey to know God, and to discern God’s desire for our lives and for the life of the world we live in, is never finished. To help us along that journey, the Cathedral offers a variety of Christian education opportunities for young people of all ages.

Babies and Toddlers

Children of all ages are welcome in our services at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. For infants and toddlers, two professional caregivers are available from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in our nursery in the Davis Room, just outside the exit near the High Altar. Feel free to ask for directions.

Children Ages 3½ to 10

The 10 a.m. Sunday service includes a special Liturgy of the Word in adjacent Bofinger Chapel. A “storyteller” leads the lesson, accompanied by an adult “shepherd” who helps direct the group. This age-appropriate service is designed for children ages 3½ to 10; younger children are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Children return to the Cathedral space at the Peace.

Preteens and Teens

Youth ages 10 and older are encouraged to participate in liturgical ministries as acolytes, lectors (readers of Scripture), members of the Altar Guild, or members of the Cathedral Choir. See below for general contact information.
