Additional Offerings This Holiday Season
Christmas at the Cathedral, December 11
One of the highlights of Advent each year is “Christmas at the Cathedral”, a special event sponsored by the Mission Outreach Council. This joyous Christmas celebration hosts young children and their families who are supported by two of the Cathedral’s charitable partners — Kid’s Hope and Small Steps — and features a Christmas meal in Reynolds Hall, games for the children, and other elements of Christmas cheer.

Celebración de Posadas, December 16–23
Each evening December 16–23, 7–9 p.m. the Latino congregation will be getting together to reenact the journey that Joseph and Mary made from Nazareth to Bethlehem, and their search for a safe refuge where Mary could give birth to baby Jesus. The Posadas are a wonderful community bonding experience that brings great joy to children and adults. Except for the Grand Posada, which is happening in the campus of the Cathedral, all Posadas in the neighborhoods will include a short form of Holy communion. Come! Walk with us, sing with us a song of hope, this is what Advent is all about: the expectation of the promise of a better tomorrow. Learn more.
The Pastorela / Christmas Play, Sunday, December 26
Sunday, December 26 our Pastorela will feature a group of children from our community. A Pastorela is a play that recreates the passage when the shepherds follow the Star of Bethlehem to go find the Christ child. It is also a great opportunity to experience the Nativity through the eyes of a child. The play will be part of the 1 p.m. service in the Cathedral. Please make plans to attend as your presence is the best support for our children actors. Learn more.
