Parents and guardians will gather monthly for time to grow, support, and connect with each other for parent brunches following the 10:30 am service. We will provide child-care with age-appropriate activities offered for both of these monthly gatherings. Whether you’ve been at Saint John’s for years, or are newer to our parish, these brunches are a perfect opportunity to connect with other cathedral parents.
