Mystagogia: Living into the Mysteries

April 28 to May 12 at 10am during Fellowship in Faith

The Great Fifty Days of Easter is the time when the church invites us to live into the very mysteries of our faith. The process of reflection and discernment is called "mystagogy", a Greek word meaning "living into the mysteries."

This forum, led by Dean Sniffen and Canon Delaney, will explore how we can discover our own unique spiritual gifts and deepen our understanding of the mysteries of faith.

Parents Forum: Growing Pains

Sunday, April 28 and May 5 at 10am during Fellowship in Faith

Growing up is not easy for anyone--not for kids, and certainly not for parents! In this special, two-part series, we'll be discussing how we can call upon the resources of our faith, not only to help children navigate important transitions but also to help parents and caregivers adjust to the changes that happens in our lives as they grow. This class is led by our Family Ministries team, the Rev. Morgan Mercer Ladd and Kate Akerman and it is open to parents and caregivers of all ages (even adult children!)

Parents Forum: Celebrating Communion

April 28 to May 12 during Fellowship in Faith

Join us for this four-part Communion instruction seminar, in which both parents and children come to understand the components of Eucharist. We will engage in dialogue about the important role that Communion plays in shaping our faith and worship. This session is appropriate for school-aged children who wish to participate in "Communion Celebration Sunday" on May 19, 2019.

Sunday April 7 is for parents only, and then parents and children will come together for subsequent classes on April 28, May 5, and May 12.

Prepare the Cathedral for Easter!

Easter Decorating

Easter Egg Hunt Volunteers Needed

Volunteers are needed to help set up and facilitate the Easter Egg hunt this Sunday. If you’re interested in helping set up please meet in the undercroft at 7:00 a.m. We’ll have donuts and coffee as we help Cornelia and the Easter Bunny prepare for the 10 a.m. egg hunt.

We’re also looking for volunteers to help in facilitating the egg hunt after the Cathedral for Kids Easter service. If you’d like to assist in making sure families find their section and do a quick clean up afterwards please meet on the cathedral lawn at 9:50 a.m. Reach out to Kate Akerman with any questions.

Memorial Day Fair Volunteers Needed!

The 66th Annual Memorial Day Fair will take place on Monday, May 27, 2019, from noon to 4pm. The fair is our opportunity share the beautiful cathedral grounds with our friends and neighbors, provide a fun day and raise money for the cathedral ministries.

It takes a lot of people to make the fair successful. There are many ways to volunteer: before the fair by getting the games ready to go, getting the word out, becoming a sponsor; on the day of the fair by running the games or rides, working at the ticket booth or in the food tent, helping with set-up or shut-down, etc. We hope you'll join us and help continue this wonderful tradition.

Sign-up sheets will be available at the Welcome Table beginning Sunday, April 28. It will also be possible to sign-up via Realm. Or, if you would like more information, please contact Carolyn Ver Pault, our Volunteers Committee head.
