It’s back to school season around the country as well as here on the Close. In addition to thinking about new school supplies and first day of school outfits, many are also facing impossible decisions: teachers who love and miss being in the classroom who fear for their health, parents whose limits have been extended in an attempt to be a full-time provider and full-time caretaker, children who thrive with routine and socializing yet live with high-risk loved ones.

There are no easy answers here and the Cathedral stands with all those trying their best in unprecedented times. The Cathedral School and Advancing the Community of Tomorrow (ACT) will begin hybrid in-person and remote classes on the Close this week. While this means our outdoor spaces will be closed to the public Mondays – Friday beginning September 8, our building remains open from daily 7:30 am – 1 pm for anyone looking for a sanctuary to meditate and reflect.
