Children are welcome at any time. The 4:00 p.m. Christmas Eve service is a particular favourite of families with young children, and it lasts approximately one hour. An infant changing station is available in one of the washrooms. This service promises a couple of special treats for the Cathedral family – and families – this year. Some of the youngest ones among us will be helping to narrate the Godly-Play-inspired story of Christmas and the Créche. And then some of those same ones will be leading us in song as a newly-formed Youth Choir!

Masks/respirators are available for those who would like them.
