A program for young children during the 10:30 am Mass. The children are dismissed before the Liturgy of the Word for their own word services and return in time to participate in the Liturgy of the Eucharist. It is a wonderful way for children to hear and understand God’s word as it is presented in an age-appropriate format. Adults serve as presenters in the program and teens assist with the children. We are always in need of both presenters and aides. Materials and training are provided. Please contact either Barbara Richardson at 392-7701 or Dave Jones at 392-5087.

Anyone who has an interest in learning about liturgical celebrations and seasons and the liturgical planning process is encouraged to contact Patty Gorman at the parish office 392-2710.
