Christian Education

The Cathedral is pleased to offer several forms of Christian Education, from ages 0 and up.  If you would like to participate in, or volunteer for, one of our Christian Education programs, please contact the Cathedral Office.

Note that many of our Christian Education programs are not offered during the Summer season.

Sunday School

Every Sunday during the 11:00 am service, Sunday School is held for younger (pre-confirmation) children.  

The Cathedral Sunday School uses the Godly Play® method. The Godly Play® method engages our innate spirituality and nourishes use of religious language to make meaning from Biblical stories through the creative process. Originally designed as a curriculum for the spiritual guidance of children, the Godly Play® method firstly aims for fluency in the Christian language before adolescence so that children entering this next stage of development have the ability to explore their existential limits and articulate their experiences in community.

Parents of younger children requiring individual supervision are encouraged to accompany their children to Sunday School.  Changing facilities are available for their convenience.

Youth Confirmation

Young people seeking the Sacrament of Confirmation are required to participate in our Youth Confirmation program.  Typically held every second year (more often if numbers dictate), Youth Confirmation training is directed towards youth age 11 and older.  Course topics are intended to help students mature in their Christian faith, engaging them in discussions and activities that foster independent Christian thought.

Classes are held during the same time as Sunday School, beginning in Autumn and ending in Spring. 
Please contact the Cathedral Office for exact details.

Adult Confirmation 

Adults seeking the Sacrament of Confirmation are required to participate in our Adult Confirmation program, which is held when there are sufficient participants.  As with Youth Confirmation, course topics are intended to help students mature in their Christian faith, engaging them in discussions and activities that foster independent Christian thought.

Please contact the Cathedral Office for exact details.

Bible Study

Periodically, the members of the Parish family will lead Bible Studies.  The programs often correspond to specific seasons in the Church Calendar, such as Lent or Advent.  Please contact the Cathedral Office for exact details.
