Christmas at the Cathedral--Winter Wonderland 2019

Christmas at the Cathedral is a treasured tradition where members of the Cathedral community volunteer time and funds to welcome and feed those in our community who are in need. 

This year we are partnering with Small Steps Nurturing Center and Kids Hope, we will be hosting children and their families. There will be games and crafts, a photo booth for keepsake Christmas memories, caroling and snowballs!!! We will end the event with a woderful seated dinner.

As in years past, we need volunteers to help make this event a success. We appreciate your support as we continue the tradition to welcome and engage with those in our community who are in need. To accommodate the needs of our guests, the event will start at 4:00 pm and continue until 6:00 pm on Saturday, December 14th. 

**NOTE: It is important that each person signing up to volunteer be associated with a specific slot to have an accurate count in each area. 



Cathedral Youth will be volunteering in a block of time from 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm.


All youth report to the Check In Table in the walkway to the cloister at 3:00 for check-in and specific assignments!!!!
