FORMATION

We believe that being a church member is the same as being a disciple.
That life in the Episcopal Church cultivates a depth
and commitment to following the way of Christ.
We look to our tradition for ways to live more deeply
into lives of prayer and spiritual practice.
BECOME A PART OF OUR FAMILY
EVEN WHEN WE ARE APART

Families faces more challenges than ever during the CoVid 19 pandemic, Christ Church Cathedral is committed to providing support and resources for children, youth, and parents.  

Christ Church Cathedral wants to be a place where parents of children from birth until they graduate from high school can find support and resources.  Ongoing information will be available on this page, in our weekly worship notes, and in our publications.

MILESTONES

Our Children's and Youth (CY) Team have been intentional in structuring how we celebrate the milestones in our children's lives within the Cathedral family. Some of the milestones are new and others have been given guidelines so that we are present for our children and young families as they grow.

BIRTH AND BAPTISM

The purpose of this milestone is to allow the church to be involved in a helpful and significant way in the life of a family and a newborn from the announcement of the pregnancy through the child’s baptism. 

 

WORSHIP READINESS

The purpose of the Worship Readiness milestone is to help children in grade 3 and their families transition the children into the Sunday morning worship service in helpful and meaningful ways that will provide children and families with the tools they need to integrate into the worship service fully. 

CONFIRMATION

The purpose of this milestone is to engage the 8th graders in the life of the parish in the process of confirmation classes that will ultimately end in the confirmation of the 8th graders on confirmation Sunday when the Bishop has his annual Parochial visit. 

 
GRADUATION

The purpose of this milestone is to celebrate and appropriately send off the graduating high school seniors from Christ Church Cathedral.

 

Over the next few months the CY Team will communicate how we will move forward as we move from quarantine.

NEW TO THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH OR TO FAITH?

Adults who are new to the Episcopal Church (or new to Christianity) may wish to attend the Inquirers Class, which may lead to their wishing to be baptized or confirmed.  The Inquirer's Class is lead by Dean Gibson.  We have no classes currently scheduled, but please contact Marla Reis (251.438.1822) in the Cathedral so that we may contact you when classes are scheduled.

 

Youth Confirmation Class:  Christ Church Cathedral confirms youth in grade 8.  The curriculum is I Will With God's Help.  The next class is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2020.  Let Carolyn Jeffers (251.438.1822) know if you have a youth who would like to join the class.
