There are so many ways to volunteer within our parish community: whether serving during worship services, greeting others, or connecting with others during the week.

Altar Guild

This group arranges the flowers, dresses the altar and cares for linens and sacramental vessels. Contact Sharon Mathiason.

Servers' Guild

The Servers' Guild welcomes teens to learn about and participate in the ministry of serving at the liturgy of the Church. Social outings, pizza lunches, etc, are just a part of the fun.

Sunday School

Our Sunday School meets during the 10:30 am service each Sunday. We start out with the congregation, take part in a brief Children's Time with the priest, and then the children and teachers proceed to the Sunday School room where the classes are held. We currently have one class. We also have a nursery available for younger children in the Vestry.

During our classes we read and discuss a Bible story or passage, and then do a craft or related activity.

We have several family-oriented events throughout the year such as potlucks, bowling & pizza parties and barbeques. This fall we had a delicious Pancake Breakfast to kick off the Sunday School year!

Newcomers are always welcome! If you have any questions or would like further information about our Sunday School, please contact the office at 306-242-5146.

Coffee Hour Ministry

We have a get together after the 10:30 am service on Sundays at the back of the church. Coffee, tea and juice are served, and often cookies or cake. Please join us at this time of fellowship.

You are invited to be hosts, along with friends, to a very casual occasion. Talk to Darcey Anton if you would like to help.

Guided Tours

Tours of the Cathedral and Columbarium are offered during the summer months. If you wish to arrange a tour, or to help with the tours, contact: Bill Latshaw.


Sidespersons greet people as they enter church, passing out bulletins and other materials. Visitors and newcomers are encouraged to write their names in the guest book. Sidespersons make sure that the wheelchair ramp entrance is open. They assist those with disabilities or in need of other assistance.

During the Offertory, they bring up the bread and wine, and then proceed to take up the collection. Communicants are directed to the communion rails in an orderly fashion.

After the service is over, sidespersons check the pews for litter, and put the worship books back in their places.

The same duties are also performed at special occasions such as funerals, weddings or special prayer services.
