Children's Chapel 

We offer Children’s Chapel for the first part of the 10:30 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.

Godly Play, (Ages 3 - 3rd Grade)

Godly Play, a Montessori-based curriculum, begins with the understanding that children have an innate sense of the presence of God and helps them explore their faith through story while enhancing their spiritual experience through wonder and play. 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.

 

SOWHAT, (4th - 5th Grade)

SOWHAT stands for: Stories, Outreach, Wonder, HOLY SPIRIT, 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 need. SOWHAT meets in room 204 (in the hallway off of St. Francis Chapel).


Acolytes

4th - 12th graders can further participate in Sunday worship by becoming an acolyte or usher. These roles are highly interactive, which makes them a great way for children to transition from our Children's Chapel program to participating in our communities sacred Eucharist. We provide training so that children will feel comfortable with their assigned tasks. For more information, please contact David Barr at DavidLBarr@msn.com.
