R.C.I.A. : Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults:

This is a formation experience for adults who are not baptized, or who have been baptized in a Christian tradition other than the Catholic Faith. This is an inspirational and informative journey in the faith. Call the Parish Office for further information.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word

Children’s Liturgy is for children ages 5 and up. The children are called forward following the Opening Prayer . With their catechist (teacher) they explore the Mass readings which are given in a way they can more fully understand. Children’s Liturgy takes place during the 9:00am and 11:00am Masses. There is no sign-up or fee. The children simply come forward when they are called. They do not leave the Church building.

Sunday Pre-School

Sunday pre-school is for children ages 3, 4 and 5, who are potty trained and able to separate easily from parents. Classes take place in the Teen Education Center during the 9:00am and 11:00am Masses. Registration takes place through the Catechetical Ministries Office. Parents drop children off just prior to the start of Mass and pick them up immediately after. For Further information or to register please call the Catechetical Ministry Office.
