“Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these’."  (Matthew 19:14)

“Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these’."  (Matthew 19:14)

Children are a key part of the congregation. The 10.30 a.m. service begins with the Dean’s children’s talk during which children sit in a circle and are encouraged to talk and think (and often laugh). Then they run off in different directions.

Kids aged 5 and under go to Karen Cooper in The Nursery in a colourful, bright room full of toys with a child-sized washroom. Children say a prayer, get a short lesson and a snack, may do a craft and always have lots of playtime. Karen also runs this program at the 9 a.m. service. 

Kids from ages 6 to 8 and 9 to 11 have Sunday school classes in meeting rooms during the 10:30 a.m. service only taught by Gay Osler, Elissa Barnard and Sarah Cooper. Bill Black leads the older pre-teen and teen group.  Youth return for Communion. 

In a normal year Bill Black’s group leads two services and helps with outreach; the 6 to 11s run a bake sale with proceeds going to charities they decide upon. All kids are welcome to participate in the Christmas pageant. 

During COVID-19  restrictions there is a Saturday 4 p.m. Zoom service for kids from the congregation and beyond .Please email the office at cathedralchurch@eastlink.ca if you’d like to participate. 

This December the Dean led the congregation and Sunday School kids in a project to decorate the church with handmade snowflakes and during Lent a similar project with butterflies. The Saturday Zoom folks baked Christmas treats for diners at Soul’s Harbour Rescue Mission in Halifax and are sending school supplies to Nunavut as a Lenten Project.
