The mission of the Children’s Ministry is to eagerly assist families in teaching God’s love. We do this through Catholic teaching traditions of faith, prayer, sacramental preparation and forming a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
- Bring daily prayer into the lives of the children
- Teach respect for all God’s creations
- Prepare the children to live God’s call of glory in their daily lives
- Welcome all children into our community of faith
Pre-School through 5th grade – Sunday’s 10:30 am – 11:45 am
Spanish classes begin after 11:30am Mass
Sacramental preparations begin at the age of discretion (usually 7 years old). The parish along with the parents will prepare children to receive First Reconciliation and Eucharist. A formation period of two years must be completed for a sufficient knowledge to understand the mystery of Christ and receive the Eucharist with faith and devotion.
A Parent Reconciliation/Confession Handbook is available upon request, this handbook contains information to enable the adult parent to hand on correct information on the Sacrament of Reconciliation to the child.
Non-baptized and uncatechized children of catechetical age will join the faith journey of RCIA.
