Join a Group
Joining a group is a great way to worship, connect, serve and grow in the cathedral community! You can join a group by joining on our online app Realm or by reaching out to the cathedral office where we will put you in touch with a group leader.
Cathedral Coffee Hour
Cathedral Council invites you to join us at the Mercer School of Theology for light refreshments and fellowship after the 9:15am Cathedral for Kids mass. It’s a great opportunity to socialize with our fellow parishioners and to welcome newcomers and visitors.
We also invite volunteers to help on a particular Sunday, set up and clear up, and help make everyone feel welcome. For more information or to sign up for a Sunday, please contact Rebecca Maines via Realm. Thank you!
Grief Support Group
The Grief Support Group offers a different quality of support and connection that comes from being with people who have also experienced a loss. The group meets on Sundays in the library at the Mercer School from 2 - 3:30 pm. Upcoming dates are Sept. 24, Oct. 8, Oct 22, Nov. 5, Nov. 19 and Dec. 3. There will be a Blue Mass on Dec. 21 at 7:00 pm. Details will be in the eNews!
Yoga is an opportunity to engage your body as part of your spiritual practice. The group practices under our tent on Wednesday mornings at 9am and Fridays at 6pm. If the weather is inclement, practice may move inside the Cathedral. Please bring your own yoga mat. All levels of yoga experience are extremely welcome! It is suggested that you register on Realm or by email in advance to join.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
The Prayer Shawl ministry knit and crochet shawls, lap robes and baby blankets for people who have asked for prayers. Beginners are welcome! This group meets online on the 4th Sunday of the month, and in person on the 2nd Sunday of the month at the Mercer School during Fellowship in Faith.
Cathedral Kneeler Project
The Cathedral Kneeler team has been busy all summer cleaning and restoring our needlepoint kneelers. Some members of the group are stitching new kneelers and re-stuffing historic ones as well.
Social Justice Ministry
As Christians seeking to transform ourselves, our Christian community, our towns, states and by extension the world, our ministry will seek to create space for God to work through us as we engage in a wide range of activities geared toward social justice.
This group is committed to offering individuals grounded in faith, hope and love opportunities throughout the year to work toward healing, justice and reconciliation while transforming lives near and far.
Cathedral for Pets
This group ministers to members of our community through and with their pets by building fellowship around fun activities with our animals and creating new spaces and events to bring people together in sacred worship and friendship with our four-legged friends.
The INNcarnation team is involved with many different aspects of service to The INN (The Interfaith Nutrition Network) in Hempstead, which serves the hungry and homeless of Long Island.
The cathedral’s chapter of Long Island Congregations and Neighborhoods. Our focus has been on working to end the opioid epidemic on Long Island through education and activism.
