Children are a gift from God. At St. James we are committed to providing care and education for children that frees parents up to participate in distraction-free worship and that draws these little ones into the life of the Church.
Church School (ages 6-12)
A formal Church School program for children between the ages of 6 and 12 is offered during the 11:00am service every Sunday from September through June, and visiting children are most welcome to participate.
Pews are reserved at the back of the Cathedral for children to gather prior to the service and are where they will be met and brought to the Cathedral Centre Library for the lesson. They are brought back to the Cathedral to rejoin their parents in time for the celebration of the Eucharist.
If you have any questions about the programming, please contact The Sub Dean
Licenced professional nursery care for children up to the age of five is available year-round from 8:45am – 12:45pm on Sunday mornings in the Cathedral Centre Library, except from Victoria Day weekend to Labour Day weekend, when it will be held in St George’s Chapel.
