What do you Love about
Christ Church Cathedral?
As we quickly approach the beginning of our program year, the Children and Youth Team wants to make a video entitled, “What I Love About Christ Church Cathedral.” They are asking that each family take home a piece of 11x17 paper from the Ministry Table (or use a piece you already have). Write your answer on the paper in heavy black marker, then take a picture of your family holding the paper above your heads. Please send the picture to Hunter Fuller:email@example.com. By sending the picture, you give permission for us to use it in our materials.
Christian formation Teachers’ Meeting
Sunday, August 25
There will be a meeting for all Christian Formation teachers (Nursery, Children’s Chapel, and Sunday School) in the Cathedral office. A light breakfast will be served.

Contemplative Prayer Class
Resumes on Mondays in the Chapel
beginning September 9, Noon-1:00 p.m.
This hour of spiritual reading and prayer facilitated by Fr. Marshall Craver is an opportunity to pause in the middle of your day and “be still and know that God is God.” We will gather in the Chapel each Monday, September 9 through November 25 from noon until 1:00 p.m. to reflect on Organic Spirituality, A Six Fold Path for Contemplative Living by Nicki Verplogen, PH.D. Her six fold path for contemplative living: slowing down, stillness, silence, solitude, sharing our stories, and simplicity offers us practical ways of living with more conscious awareness of Christ’s presence in our daily lives. Regular attendance is encouraged but not required. Come when you can. If you plan on attending please call the church off at (251) 438-1822 and register so we can order a book for you. Books are $18 and can be picked up and paid for at our first gathering.
Sundays: 10:00 am
Wednesdays: Noon In the Chapel
We extend a warm welcome to all visitors. A nursery is available and Children's chapel for ages 3-8 is held in the Chapel. Please join us after the service for a time of hospitality in the Chapter House.
