Christian Formation is a life-long process, for each individual and for the Christian community. With this in mind, the Christian Formation Committee oversees activities which provide opportunities for open discussion, reflection, study and prayer.
On Sunday mornings children attend Sunday School, while the adults engage in a group discussion based on the Sunday Gospel readings. "So Great a Cloud of Witnesses", which meets monthly on the 1st Sunday, is a presentation and discussion about persons whose lives and writings are exemplary and inspirational.
Meeting bi-monthly are 2 Bible study groups with different objectives: The Monday Night Bible Study group reads and reflects on a selected book of the Bible in the home of a parishioner. The Thursday Bible Study group meets at the Cathedral after midday Eucharist to reflect on the coming Sunday's Psalm and Epistle readings, as relevant to their lives and the world around us.
"Righteous Readers" gather once a month to review a book selected from a long list of suggestions from the participants. Quiet Days of Reflection occur quarterly throughout the year.
Our popular monthly Cathedral Institute is a long standing tradition in the Christian Formation programs. Cathedral Institute offers an evening Eucharist and a delicious pot luck supper, followed by an educational lecture and discussion session. During Lent, Cathedral Institute meets weekly. The topics whether one of a kind or a seasonal series, are broad based and therefore offer something of interest to everyone. Our discussion groups often become as lively as they are educational!
The Cathedral's Christian Formation programs attract many of our parishioners, as well as our "Friends of the Cathedral" who attend regularly and are always welcomed!
