Children’s Liturgy of the Word – A weekly practice at the 11:00am mass of dismissing our young children to the parish hall to hear the Word of God proclaimed at their age level. Historically and liturgically, it is part of the Mass. It is not considered to be Faith Formation, in the formal sense. Adults are invited to come forward to share their time, talent and faith to lead these weekly 10-15 minute sessions.
Faith Formation – Classes are offered weekly, Sundays at 9:45am or Mondays at 4:30pm, by our volunteer catechists who are committed to helping parents form their young children in the ways and teaching of Jesus Christ.
