Ministries with Families, Children & Youth

Grace Cathedral is a house of prayer for all people: young and old. We honor our community of children, and their inifinite questions about who we are, why we are here, what freedom is for... and so much more.

Seating for Families & Children

During the 11 a.m. Choral Eucharist, families with children sit together in the first pews at the front of the cathedral congregation: because it's fun, we like each other, and it helps volunteers and children to find their families when it's time.

Infant and Toddler Care

Children of all ages are always welcome in worship at Grace Cathedral. Some infants and toddlers prefer to play in our nursery, with professional childcare attendants. When parents are needed, our staff of professional child care attendants contacts them via our in-house paging system. The nursery is open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., every Sunday of the year.

Parents With Young Children

Parents of infants and toddlers gather (almost) monthly for a come-as-you-are potluck supper. A host family provides the main dish and a topic or activity. Guest families bring side dishes and join in the fellowship! Child care is provided during supper, and through the 6:00 p.m. Holy Eucharist which follows. Visitors are always welcome.

Special Events

Grace Cathedral is a spiritual gathering place for many kinds of families. We come together for worship and learning, every Sunday; and we also gather for fellowship and community support. Together, we feast and celebrate the seasons, we share in workshops and conversation, we take an annual retreat.
