Sunday School We welcome grades 1-7 children attending public schools and all interested families to participate in catechism lessons between 9:00 and 11:00 Sunday Mass. Lessons are about 50 min. and take place September to the first Sunday of May. Our program, Christ Our Life, provides solid faith background. There are student workbooks and excellent teaching manuals for our volunteers. We are very grateful to and rely on parental volunteers and volunteers from our parish family who make this program possible.
Children's Liturgy Children’s Liturgy is a volunteer program, which prepares the Sunday’s reading for Pre-Sacramental children (ages 3 to Grade 2) with crafts, prayers and stories. Once Father kisses the altar, the children are to come forward put their coins in the basket at the front of the altar to support our foster child. The priest then blesses the children, and they go forth to learn about Jesus and return to the congregation during collection. Registration forms are on the bulletin board by the coat racks. This children’s program runs yearly from fall – spring.
Library Your Parish Library offers a developing collection of faith-based book and video resources a) for children, youth, and adults b) for a variety of spiritual interests, educational needs, and personal tastes, and c) for assorted parish programs. We serve so all might grow. Volunteers choose their own level of service with options including 1) casual once-a-month help with sign-outs and returns before/after mass, or 2) free-time cataloguing and organizing, or 3) active committee participation in assessing parish needs and developing library request lists, or 4) any combination of the above options.
