Children’s Christmas Service
Dec 21 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Children are invited to get dressed up as angels, shepherds, animals and kings for the annual Children’s Christmas Service at the Cathedral.

The scene is constructed complete with a real baby during the service. Mary and Joseph are cast beforehand, but we can accommodate any cast size with children of all ages.

Bring your children dressed ready to join in, then sit back and relax. As the story of Jesus’ birth unfolds, the chaotic crib scene is created, the children sing some familiar carols and we say some simple prayers.
