Small Groups

Making Our Big Community Smaller

Small groups connect you to other people on their faith journey with similar spiritual needs and interests. They help make our large cathedral feel a little smaller and unite our community across services.

Below are groups that are currently meeting, which include descriptions and group coordinators. Please contact the Rev. Amy Newell-Large, Curate for Parish Life, at if you wish to join a group listed below or if you would like to start a small group.

Book Group on Sunday Mornings

Be still and know that I am God…

Knitting Group

This group gathers to knit in community on the first and third Thursdays of the month. Our current ongoing project is making prayer shawls for the clergy to give to a parishioner in a time of grief or celebration. Those who want to work on personal knitting projects are welcome to join us as well. All skill levels are welcome. We have several skilled people who enjoy teaching others.
