CHILDREN’S PROGRAM & FAMILY MINISTRY
This year our program is experimenting with ways we can connect and keep our most vulnerable community members safe from COVID-19 and variants.
Currently, our Director of Family Ministry Kate Garduño King, is helping organize outdoor meetups and creating family activity boxes.
Every two weeks we meet up at a park or outdoor area in or near Saskatoon. We have a small ceremony and activity, and them we go play and explore.
The activity boxes are several ideas for family games, projects, and books around a seasonal theme.
We’re always exploring new ways to meet safely so keep checking back to see what else we are doing. If you have an idea of an activity that we can do together virtually or in person, email DFM.Kate.SU@gmail.com.
If you’d like to be included in e-mailings and activity boxes, fill out this form.
Saskatoon Unitarians recognize the importance of providing fellowship and support for parents. Our Director of Family Ministry is currently working on ways we can meet safely. Stay tuned to learn more when we know more. If you have an idea of an activity that we can do together virtually or in person, email DFM.Kate.SU@gmail.com.
Our program aims to provide all ages with a safe and supportive environment in which to:
- Learn about many religions and cultures along with Unitarian Universalism
- Explore new ideas and engage the imagination
- Make friends and develop a sense of belonging
- Deepen understanding of themselves and of life
- Empower one another to work for a more just and caring world
Director of Family Ministry
Kate Garduño King
Hello, everyone! I am the Director of Family Ministry.
I provide opportunities children, youth, and parents can connect, learn and grow in our congregation. I come from 14 years as a Librarian in New Mexico, with the last several years spent at home with my two children. My partner Graham King, our kids, and I joined the Saskatoon Unitarians when we moved to Saskatoon in December 2017. I love dogs, being outside, playing board games, knitting and learning new things. Intergenerational connections are important to me, as are opportunities for kids and their families to see themselves as important members of our community. The more we get together, the happier we’ll be!
