As the number of Covid infections drop and the number of vaccinations rise, we are pleased to plan some fun, outdoor fellowship activities for families of all ages. Masks and social distancing are required for all Cathedral activities, and parents should plan to supervise their children during all activities.
May 29, 10 a.m. to Noon: St. Alban’s Peace Garden
Join us as we learn how life triumphs over death in the Peace Garden! The Peace Garden at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church benefits the Community Cupboard of Lawrence, a food pantry on the northeast side of Indy. On May 29 we’ll be planting 300 tomato plants, so bring your garden gloves and trowels if you have them! Get directions to St. Alban’s Episcopal Church.
July 17, 11 a.m.: St. Peter’s Apiary
St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Lebanon welcomes us to tour their teaching beehives. Beesuits will be provided and are available in children and adult sizes. St. Peter’s has kept honeybees since 2015, when they were inspired by Bishop Cate Waynick to consider building an apiary as part of their creation care. Their current hives are named Jennifer, Cate, and Rebekah. The first two hives are named for our first two female bishops: Cate Waynick and Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows. The third hive is named for Isaac’s assertive and powerful wife. Get directions to St. Peter’s Episcopal Church.
Aug. 14, 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.: Nativity Pet Food Pantry and Labyrinth
In October 2020, the Church of the Nativity opened a pet food pantry for anyone struggling to feed their pets. Our crew will volunteer to staff the Stable Pet Food Pantry before we pray the labyrinth and enjoy the beautiful gardens and playground. We’ll also have an ice cream party to celebrate the start of school! The Stable Pet Food Pantry is located in the trailer adjacent to the church. Get directions to the Church of the Nativity.
Sept. 11, 11 a.m.: Apple Picking at Anderson Orchard
Welcoming back an annual CCC tradition! We’ll meet at the playground at Anderson Orchard and make our way back to the lake for a picnic! Pick a bag of apples to benefit CCC’s Sunday morning breakfast ministry for our neighbors experiencing homelessness and hunger. Get directions to Anderson Orchard.
