Children's Ministry

During our 8 and 10 A.M. Mass on Sundays, children 5 years and younger may join us in the nursery for Children's Ministry. We have developed an age appropriate curriculum based on the message of the Gospel. Children's ministers are always needed, please contact our Director of Children's Ministry to join our team.

Children's Liturgy of the Word 

Children in K-4 grade are welcome to join us during the 8 and 10 A.M. Mass for Children's Liturgy of the Word. Children are dismissed from Mass, they will go with their Catechists to break open the Scriptures together.  The Catechists return the children to the sanctuary during the Preparation of the Gifts. Parents are welcome to join their child anytime but for security and safety we recommend parents enroll in our Child and Youth Protection Program

Faith Formation

Raising our children in the faith is important to us as parents and as a faith community. To further support parents as the first educators of their children, we offer classes in Faith Formation for children in grades K-12. We offer a program for grades K-4, another program for Middle School children, and a program for High School students. For more information about our programs contact our staff.
