Children’s Liturgy of the Word — Following the Opening Prayer during Mass, children in   Pre-K through fourth grade are invited to go forth to listen to God’s Word in language more easily understood by them.  Trained leaders reflect on the Word and lead the children in presenting their prayers to God.  Children return to the assembly as the gifts are being gathered.

Elementary Faith Formation Program (Grades K-5) — It is through a blending of family, classroom, and whole community that the richness of our Catholic faith is passed on to our children.  Through faith education, prayer experiences and group gatherings, parish children meet to learn more about their Catholic faith and how to live out their Baptismal call.  Sessions are led by trained Catechists.

 

Meets:  9:35 – 10:50 a.m. most Sundays throughout the school year and special meeting days.
