We  offer Children’s Chapel for the first part of the 9:00 am service  for children ages 3 and up, in Saint Francis Chapel (2nd floor, up the stairs from the Welcome Center).  This is a child-friendly version of the Liturgy of the Word.  Children come into the Cathedral in time to join parents for Communion. Parents are welcome to stay or sign in their children. For more detail:  Childrens Chapel Information.pdf

  

Sunday Formation Classes at 10:15 am:

Godly Play, (Ages 3 - 3rd Grade)

In Godly Play, we create a safe and beautiful space where children are deeply respected as they see, hear and wonder about stories from the Bible or another part of our Episcopal tradition. Using hands-on  materials and “wondering questions” to reflect on the story together, children then choose from a variety of materials—art supplies, building materials, books, etc —to make their own creative responses, and to help make the stories truly their own. Prayers and a feast (snack) round out the session.  
• 3-4 year olds: Preschool Godly Play, Room 103
• K-1st Grades: Godly Play Class, Room 101
• 2nd-3rd Grades: Godly Play for Older Kids, Room 202

SOWhAT, (4th - 5th Grade)
Room 204

SOWhAT stands for: Stories, Outreach, Wonder, Arts, & Theology. At this age, children are ready for more…more insight, more activities, and more sophisticated art projects. Now that the Bible stories learned in Godly Play are part of their experience, they can delve more deeply. This year, the SOWhAT class will ponder questions about sacred spaces or 'thin places'.and how people have found God in places around the world. They will learn together how their own impact on the world as  followers of Christ can make a difference. This class will deeply engage in wondering, finding meaning, and reaching out to people in needDear 4th graders.pdf
