"We were both brought to Saint John’s in utero by our parents, Baptized and Confirmed here. We grew up here. We’ve gone to other churches and spent time away but always come back “home.” Cultivating the space to grow in faith with God and each other - deep in the hearts of our youth - is imperative to our future."

-Beth Springer and Sophia Burris
"Serving as a Catechumenate table host each week, to encourage and support a new crop of catechumens, has been a true joy. While I know that all of our cathedral programs need this kind of “volunteer” service in order to happen, I find myself receiving as much or more than I give."

-John MacLeod
     
Catechumenate
Join us on Wednesday nights, beginning September. The Catechumenate is for those who have never been part of a church, those who are returning to church after a long absence, or those who have belonged to another faith tradition. It is the heart of our formation process for adults, an exploration of what it means to be a Christian in the Anglican tradition. The evening class includes a simple supper and a brief time of prayer or worship. Even if you have not come before to previous nights, please join us!

Childcare is open from 4:00 – 9:00 pm on Wednesdays in the Nursery Room for all ages.


Children
At Saint John’s, we believe that children are an important part of our community. We have designed our programs to meet their needs, from Children’s Chapel during the first part of the 9:00 am service, to all our classes. We do Godly Play, a Montessori style religious education program that invites the children to wonder and respond creatively to the stories of the Bible and our Episcopal tradition. Over time, the stories are written on their hearts, and they can go deeper as they participate in the SOWhAT class, and later, Youth Group. Godly Play is also offered on Wednesdays, 4:15-5:25 pm-a perfect time if you missed coming on Sunday! For more information, please contact Kim McPherson at kim@sjcathedral.org.


Cathedral Camp
It is our delight to offer a week of overnight camp each summer at our beautiful Diocesan Camp and Conference Center, Cathedral Ridge. Children and teens alike look forward to it all year long. It is a time to play, sing, pray, and form a loving community that lasts for years to come.

Education for Ministry
EFM stands for “Education for Ministry” and is a four year program of study, prayer and spiritual reflection. In EFM, a small group comes together weekly to share insights and questions from their readings, and to engage in spiritual practices. The years in EFM are devoted to Old and New Testament, Theology, and Christian history, with theological reflection woven into each session. EFM is wonderful preparation for all ministries in the Church, both lay and ordained. 

Nursery
Our nursery is a cheerful, safe and welcoming environment for our very youngest members (up to age three). It is staffed by professional caregivers as well as volunteers—all trained to ensure your child’s stay is safe in every possible way! Our Nursery garden is a place to play and to enjoy all the green and growing things there. During weekday or other offerings, older children are welcome, too. For more information, please contact Kim McPherson at kim@sjcathedral.org.


Youth
This year’s youth program will benefit from years of wisdom about what our youth like, what they need and how to give them both! On Sunday mornings, our youth participate in worship as ushers, acolytes and readers. Then they gather in the youth room for time to be with one another, play some games that relate to the theme for the day, and then have conversation around the day’s topic. We’re planning frequent retreats and overnights, as well as mission trips in the summer. And of course, our youth love Cathedral Camp, and look forward to becoming counselors.
