Youth Engagement Programming


Christ Church Cathedral offers youth engagement programming for persons in 4th – 12th grade. This program, coordinated by Melissa Vath, seeks to provide opportunities for youth ages 10-18 to connect, serve, and grow in their faith. The program is grounded in the Five Marks of Mission:

  • To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom

  • To teach, baptize and nurture new believers

  • To respond to human need by loving service

  • To seek to transform unjust structures of society

  • To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth
