Children’s Faith Formation

Starting in the fall we will meet on most Sunday mornings at 8:15.  Each week’s sessions will be liturgically based and will use the scripture readings of the day as a basis for our faith sharing with the children.All families of the Parish with children from 4 to 11 years old are welcome to register and participate in this program.  Registration will be in August and we will start in September.

Here is how the program works:

  • Parents will bring their child/ren to Parish Hall on Sunday mornings at 8:15 am and then they can join the other parents for coffee in Barry Hall prior to 9 am Mass.
  • Faith Formation will begin in age-appropriate groups with the catechist to focus and prepare for the lessons of the readings of the day.
  • All the children will gather at 9:15 am for the Liturgy of the Word from the Children’s Lectionary and discussion of the Word.
  • Parents will attend the 9 am Mass. At around 9:30 am (during the presentation of the gifts) the children will join their families in the church and celebrate the Liturgy of the Eucharist with the community.

It is our hope that this way of sharing our faith with the children of the parish will enhance their understanding and appreciation of the liturgy, scriptures and the traditions of our Catholic faith.

It will also afford parents the opportunity to participate in the first half of the Mass while their children are attending their own liturgical and catechetical sessions in the Hall. It will then bring parents and children together again for the Liturgy of the Eucharist and Holy Communion.
