A “Virtual Cathedral” for Students at St Andrew’s Schools

With St. Andrew’s Schools grades 4-12 engaging in distance learning to start off the year, students will be attending Cathedral via Zoom once a week. If they cannot come to the Cathedral, then the Cathedral will come to them!

The Priory Upper School (grades 7-12) live-Zoom will connect to them from the Cathedral itself, and students will “come” to Cathedral in real time on Tuesdays from their homes via their device.

Grades 4-6 will receive their own Cathedral-in-a-Bag (pictured at top) to help them create a little sacred space reminiscent of St. Andrew’s. Complete with a prayer card, a stone (for the Cathedral), a blue glass marble (for the stained glass), red and yellow feathers (for the kahili), and a wooden fish (for St. Andrew himself, and the fountain outside), these at-home Cathedral-pieces will, prayerfully, connect the students with their home base here at Queen Emma Square.

Grades K-3 will be on-campus and in-person. They will also have Zoom Cathedral, however, Mother Heather and the homerooms will have a chance to meet and and experience St. Andrew’s together, one class at a time.
