Children are invited to help celebrate the mass at various times throughout the year, including Christmas Eve Pageant and Easter Week.
Christmas Eve Pageant
Children of all ages are welcome to participate in this year's Christmas Eve Pageant. This narrative Gospel play shares the 'Greatest Story Ever Told'. Details can be found on the registration form (please see the related links section) - please fill one out and return to Children's Ministry Leaders the weekends of Oct. 19/20 or Oct. 26/27, or e-mail information and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sunday Children’s Liturgy Program
From September to June, children ages 3 to grade 4 are invited to the hall during the 9am and 11am masses (after the first hymn, until the preparation of the gifts) for their own gospel lesson.
A staff of committed volunteers teach using the Pflaum Gospel Curriculum to offer age-appropriate learning based on the same readings heard upstairs. This team is always happy to grow!
