Godly Play Returns!

Godly Play, our Sunday School classes for children age 2 through fifth grade, returns next Sunday, September 8, at 10:10 a.m. Helping parents to access age-appropriate ways to participate in and reflect on our liturgical life, our sacred stories, our call to Christian service, our charge to share the Good News, and our shared spiritual life is essential to our ministry with children. Godly Play is at the heart of our Sunday morning classes and the Godly Play philosophy permeates all that we do with children and families at the Cathedral.

Children's Chapel is Back this Week

Children’s Chapel resumes in full this Sunday, September 8. Children’s Chapel takes place during the 8:45 a.m. service as an option for parents and children who are not yet ready to experience the full liturgy together, though children are always welcome in “big” church. Children four years (by September 1, 2019) through fifth grade begin in church with their parents, then follow the children’s acolytes and leaders out at the sequence hymn. Children rejoin their parents at the Offertory. Two- and three-year-olds attend their own chapel service, which begins at 8:45 a.m.

For the fourth year, the Cathedral Book Store is collecting new books for the children at the Homeless Requiem, the children at the Arrendale Prison Children’s Center, the young people at Covenant House, and the children at Wilderness Works, this year’s Antiques Show beneficiary. Books are available to purchase at the Cathedral Book Store during regular business hours or in the Atrium from 9 -11 a.m. each Sunday in October. Our goal is to collect 250 books to be distributed to children attending the Homeless Requiem in November and to the other groups in December. Please purchase a book and help each of these beautiful children receive a wonderful gift this year!

Pajama Day in Support of Emma’s Closet

Emma’s Closet is now collecting coats and shoes to be distributed at the Homeless Requiem. Children who bring items on Sunday, October 21 to donate are invited to wear their PJs to church. This year we are collecting items for all people. We have noticed a high demand for men’s shoes. We would love to collect a large selection of men’s track shoes or outdoor thick-soled shoes in assorted sizes. We still need items for children but we are expanding our inventory this year to adults.
