Children & Youth

Children and youth are not the future of the church they are a lively and active part of the church today. We value our children and want them to experience our faith in a way that meets their needs. We want our children to be safe. We want our children to build healthy relationships that will grow into lifelong friendships. You will find many opportunities for young people to experience the joy and wonder of their life in Christ at Saint Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral.

Children's Ministry

Nursery care is available on Sunday mornings for children ages 4 and under. With a caring and knowledgeable team, young children are offered a safe and welcoming environment.
