Christmas on the River

In recent years, about this time of the year, members of the our congregation get busy with their knitting and baking. It's all for Christmas on the River, a project of the Seamen's Church Institute that the cathedral supports. The ministry provides Christmas gift boxes to the men and women who work the tugboats on our inland waterways that provide so many of the resources on which our society depends. The gift boxes contain hand knitted scarves, home baked cookies, other small gift items and holiday greetings. In recent years, cathedral volunteers have been packing approximately hundreds of boxes for distribution.

Cookie Bake

Join members and friends of the congregation as they gather each year prior to the packing day to bake cookies to put in the boxes!  This year's cookie bake will be on Saturday, November 22, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. All supplies will be provided. Register with Beth Mendez if you want to join the fun.
