Children and families are welcome at the Cathedral. We believe that children are an essential part of the community and that nurturing children’s spirituality starts with being known and loved at church.

On Sunday mornings, nursery care is available during the 10:15 am service for babies through age 4. We believe it is important to love and nurture the spiritual growth of the youngest children. While in the nursery, children are cared for by Jennifer Payne, our child care leader, as well as volunteers from the Cathedral community.  

Children engage with bible stories and activities, listen to music, and most importantly, play! All children are also invited to join their families in worship if that is your preference. There are activity bags available in the narthex, and you'll find  this is an community that embraces children in worship.  Additionally, you can bring your child to the nursery at the start of the service and pick them up to join you at the Eucharist. 

The Cathedral is committed to provided a safe and nurturing environment for every child. Please be sure to sign your child in and write down any important information we need to know about your child (for example, any allergies or preferences). If desired, leave your cell phone number and a caregiver will text you if you are needed for any reason. Additionally, all volunteers and staff are required to be Safe Guarding God’s Children’s certified, an Episcopal training and awareness program about keeping kids and adults safe in church environments.

There is a comfort room on the right side of the sanctuary if your child should need some space during the service. There are chairs for adults and quiet books and toys for your child to play with while you can still hear and participate in the service.

If you have any questions about nursery care, would like to request childcare for another event at the Cathedral, or would like to know more about opportunities for children and families at the Cathedral, please contact Hillary Peete, Children’s Minister.
