Youth ministry is an integral part of the whole ministry of the Cathedral of St. Philip. The youth ministry programs exists so that all youth can find their place and participate as full members of our faith community through involvement in all aspects of the parish.
Youth ministry at the Cathedral of St. Philip encompasses the following key components:
Participation in Worship:
Strengthening personal spiritual growth through attending services, serving as readers and acolytes during the liturgy, and participating in many aspects of the Cathedral worship community.
Bible Study and Faith Formation:
Increasing knowledge, understanding and experience of the Christian faith, life, and mission through study and practice.
Experiencing Christian love, fellowship, and fun with peers and adult mentors through joyful expressions of our faith as we journey together.
Faithful Mission and Service:
Participating in the global ministry and mission of God’s church through service, stewardship, witness, and evangelism.
Below is the schedule for meeting times. All classes will be on Sunday afternoons from 4–6 p.m. Classes will begin in Child Hall for large group presentations by our Canons and then break into small groups for discussions. The program ends with a weekend retreat for all participants, adult leaders, and high school mentors.
CONFIRMATION CLASS SCHEDULE FOR 2024:

Every youth is welcome to participate in the Cathedral’s youth ministry program. Whether it is faith formation, acolyting, youth choir, mission and service work, ski trips or rafting adventures; each is sure to find a place here.
