Worship FAQs

Because we’re located in a neighborhood, parking is sometimes challenging.

Parking is available in lots on the north side of 13th Avenue, east of Grand Boulevard (just beyond the former Lindaman's Restaurant, or just beyond S. Cowley Street).

Street parking is available on the south side of E. 12th Avenue, the east side of S.Cowley Street, and the south side of E. Sumner Avenue (below the Cathedral). 

Handicapped parking is located on the east end of the building. Driveway access for this small lot is at 12th Avenue and S. Cowley Street.

Drop-offs can be made at the Welcome Center entrance on E. 12th Avenue.

The Sunday 10:30am service usually lasts 75-90 minutes.

The Saturday 5:30pm and Sunday 8am services usually last 60 minutes.

The Wednesday 10am service usually lasts 45 minutes.

There is no set standard. Clothing ranges from jeans to business casual to suit coats or dresses. The Cathedral can be a little cool in the winter, so sweaters are recommended.

All children are welcome to attend worship services with their families. In fact, we have an area in the sanctuary with quiet toys and rocking chairs for parents with young children, and activity worship packets young people can use during worship. We also have Sunday School at 10:30am every Sunday during the school year, with the children joining the congregation after the sermon. There's child care for infants and toddlers 9am-noon.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, we are not offering child care at this time.

Our “Kids’ Place” nursery for infants, toddlers and younger children is located on the south side of Jewett House, ground floor. We provide a Christ-centered program during worship services and other events. Qualified caregivers provide a safe, warm and loving environment for young children.

During the program year, the nursery is staffed from 9am until noon, allowing parents to participate in the Sunday Forum, Cathedral Choir, and worship. During the summer, the nursery is staffed 10am-noon.

All volunteers who work with children and youth undergo training that covers appropriate boundaries and policies, including CPR training and Safeguarding God's Children, to ensure that St. John's Cathedral is a truly safe and sacred place.

Yes! The Welcome Center entrance is wheelchair-accessible. The Cathedral contains several open spaces for wheelchairs. Assisted listening headsets and large print service leaflets are available from an usher.
