Parents

Faithful Families

Cathedral families gather for fun, fellowship, and mutual support. From a summer Sunday picnic in the park to parent support groups, we are raising our families together in a community of faith and unconditional love.

Please note that we are not hosting in-person parent groups at this time due to COVID-19. For more information on how parents are staying connected at this time, contact Director of Formation, Tina Clark at tina@sjcathedral.org.

  • Parenting in Faith

    Parenting in Faith is a time and space to gather as a village and just be together as parents. Time together will be spent tackling the needs and desires of those in the group, including what it means to parent faithfully in the twenty-first century.

    This gathering is for everyone in our community who is in the midst of raising kids of all ages: single parents and married parents, LGBTQ parents and cis-gendered hetero parents, foster parents, adoptive parents, grandparents, biological parents, parents of children with disabilities, parents of neurotypical children, parents of genius children, parents of changelings. All are welcome.

    Please contact Director of Formation Tina Clark at tina@sjcathedral.org if you have any questions.

  • Parents of Young Children

    Meeting the second and fourth Tuesday of the month in the morning from 9:30-11 in the Wellspring Center

    Raising young children is holy, life-giving work, but it often leaves parents feeling isolated and yearning for connection. We gather for conversation and connection, mutual support and prayer, and facilitated explorations of the sacred work of parenting.

    Please contact Director of Formation Tina Clark at tina@sjcathedral.org if you have any questions.
