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.

For the safety of participants and volunteers, the parish religious education program will be using a hybrid model again this year:

1st Communion and Confirmation

Grades 2 to 7

For children in public schools in grades 2 to 7 (including 1st Reconciliation/1st Communion and Confirmation students), sessions will be in a parent and child format (‘Family Faith Nights’) on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month 4:45 to 5:45 pm from Oct. 12 to May 10.  One parent must attend with child(ren).
