Find Your Ministry at Saint John's Cathedral

Please note that we are not hosting in-person events at this time due to COVID-19.

Adult Formation Committee

This team of parishioners supports the formation department in hosting our Dean’s Forum and Cathedral Night presentations. Please note this team is not gathering during COVID-19.

Cathedral Night Cooks

Every Wednesday during the program year, our community gathers for Cathedral Night; time for worship, fellowship, and learning. A highlight of every week is the home-cooked meal prepared and served by a wonderful team of volunteers.

You do not have to be an expert in the kitchen to help out, but if you are, we’d love to have you join as well. There are positions on the team for all levels of expertise.

Children's Ministry Team

This team is a committee of parents who meet regularly to plan, develop, and assess children’s ministry, formation, and family social gatherings.

Learning Garden

Our gardens along 13th Avenue are tended in partnership with Metro Caring. Volunteers from Saint John’s assist Metro Caring’s garden participants with their individual plots by occasionally watering, weeding, or picking up trash. Garden volunteers should plan to visit the garden once a week during the growing season.

Loving and Caring for Saint John's

This is a group of people who frequently come together for a “Cathedral Work Day” to clean and take care of our beautiful building. The Loving and Caring for Saint John’s group ask that parishioners of all ages consider taking an active role in maintaining the beauty of our building.

Music Ushers

Our music ushers help greet and direct visitors for our concert series. Many of the music ushers also usher on Sunday mornings, but that is not a requirement to volunteer for our music events.

Saint Francis Center Apartment Volunteers and Cooks

Each volunteer opportunity at the Saint Francis Apartments is designed to help you come to know our new, formerly homeless neighbors across the street and to strengthen and support their growing community. In addition to the weekly and monthly activities listed below, the Center provides various workshops, hosts a birthday party every six months, and finds other ways for volunteers to create community with our neighbors.

Thursday mornings: Join residents as they visit Metro Caring to get groceries for their own use.
Sunday evenings, once a month: Help plan, prepare, and serve a simple Sunday dinner for residents.

Soup for the Soul

The Soup for the Soul ministry is a group of people who cook meals for the members of our community who are sick or otherwise unable to attend church. The Eucharistic Volunteers bring the frozen soup with them when they bring communion to those members.

Spiritual Direction

We are blessed to have an in-house team of certified Spiritual Directors ready and willing to meet with fellow parishioners. Please contact Canon Katie to learn more and be referred to the Spiritual Direction team.

Welcome Center Volunteers

Our Welcome Center volunteers work in shifts during the workday Monday through Friday, as well as Sunday mornings. Volunteers greet visitors, members, and vendors, fulfill assigned tasks, and operate the telephone and direct calls to the correct staff or clergy person.

Women's Homelessness Initiative

Every Monday night on even-numbered months, we have a group of women from the Women’s Homelessness Initiative stay at the cathedral. Our wonderful women who volunteer to assist help cook dinner, make breakfast bags, and chat with the women from the initiative.

Youth Ministry Team

The youth ministry team meets quarterly to assess vision, formation programming, and community building events. We also try our best to ensure that our youth are integrated into the overall life of Saint John’s.
