Ages 5 – 14
Children’s Liturgy of the Word:
Liturgy of the Word is offered during the 11:00 a.m. Mass for children ages 5 to 12 from September to May. The children come to church and sit with their parents. After the opening prayer they will leave with two catechists who read and discusses the Gospel with them at a level they can understand. The children return to Mass after the homily for the Liturgy of the Eucharist. There will be some Sundays during the year where there will be no Children’s Liturgy scheduled.

We are excited to offer Totus Tuus to the youth of our church. “For Many are Called, But Few are Chosen” is our theme. The mission of Totus Tuus is to inspire in young people a true longing for holiness, a deep desire for daily conversion and an openness to their vocation by the constant challenge to give themselves entirely to Christ through Mary and by continually strengthening their prayer lives in imitation of Her.
