Cathedral Notes



We welcome today the Very Reverend Johnny Cook, Dean Emeritus of Christ Church Cathedral.  Dean Cook served as Rector and Dean from 2004-2014.  Johnny and his wife Mary are members of the Cathedral Family who join us when they are not traveling, visiting family, or residing in their condo in Angel Fire, New Mexico.

This Week in Sunday School

This week Miss Julia will be with us to finish up projects we have been working on all school year.  Some of us need to finish burlap needlepoint art, some of us need to work on our liturgical cycle chart, and some of us can start to color sacred mandalas. We always  start with Children’s Chapel and should be back in time for the Passing of the Peace and announcements with our parents in the church. Youth are invited to the FUN CLUB each Sunday for special snack, a short lesson, and lots of air hockey with Julia Pope.

Save the Date

Celebration of the 200th anniversary of the founding of Christ Church, Mobile

on All Saints’ Sunday, November 5, 2023.

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School will be held on Sundays during worship from July 9 through August 6.

This year we will learn about Daniel in the Lion’s Den on Sunday mornings for five fun-filled weeks.  Children dress casually and come ready to play. Please plan to stay a bit after worship in the Chapter House for snacks and family activities with our children.

We are looking for adult leaders, someone to make a special VBS snack each week, and youth assistants. 

To help, please use the sign up on the weekly email and on the website.

Food Share Pantry

Take What You Need—Give What You Can 

Thank you for your continuing generosity in keeping our food pantry stocked. 

As you shop this week, please consider purchasing bottled water,

individually packaged fruit—dried or single serving, peanut butter, bread,

or any easy to eat foods that are easy to open. 

Please your donation in the box by the ministry table or in the flower guild room.



As you plan for your summer fun, please remember to keep your Stewardship and Capital pledges current. This would be a good time to consider

starting a monthly ACH withdrawal from your checking account

or paying your pledge online through the Christ Church Cathedral website. 

Please contact Brenda Stanton in the Cathedral office for assistance with either method. 

Thank you for your continued support of Christ Church Cathedral.


What is Realm?

Realm is the latest version of the church database that we have been using since 2004.  Lara Sherer, Holly Hall, Brenda Stanton, and Carolyn Jeffers have been working with the program for the last year to learn how to integrate Realm into the ministries of the Cathedral Family.  On Realm you will be able to update your personal information, engage in your ministry groups, check your giving history and print giving statements, register for parish events, and have access to the directory.  There is also an app that will help you stay connected wherever you go.  Later in June we will send everyone two emails—one with details on how to register, and the other with the registration link.  When you receive the emails, please be among the first to register.      

Christ Church Cathedral is on:
