Ministries for Children

Children's Liturgy ~ Temporarily Suspended due to Covid


Children’s Liturgy, celebrated on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month at the 11:00 am Mass, is a parallel celebration to the Liturgy of the Word portion of the Mass, geared for children ages 3 and up.  Children leave after the gathering rite to go to their own sacred space in the parish center next door.   They return to the assembly to celebrate Eucharist with their families.

Families will then be given a ready-to-go take home activity to do on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month. One parent must attend with child(ren).

1st Communion and Confirmation Classes
For children in grade 2 and grade 7,  these student only in-class sessions will run 4:45 to 5:45 pm on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month Oct. 27 to May 11.  Limited space due to physical distancing requirements.
