We have many opportunities for your children to be involved here at St. Francis of Assisi Parish.
Children’s Liturgy of the Word
If you would like your children to enjoy Sunday scriptures, you may want to consider Children’s Liturgy of the Word group. A wonderful chance for them to hear the Word of God expressed in a meaningful way and at their own age level. They will come with you and before the first reading, they will come forward and receive a blessing from our Priest, then their Teacher will lead them to their group where they will have Prayer, Scripture and activities. During the collection they will be brought back to you.
Parish Children’s Choir and Youth Band and Choir
Perhaps your child loves Music. This is a great opportunity for them to join our Parish Children’s Choir and Youth Band and Choir. This is open to all children and youth in the Parish as well as Religious Education and St. Francis School students. This is a very exciting group and a great time to meet new friends from all the different groups. Your child will feel very special as they play their music before the Lord and with their friends of the Parish.
Sunday Preschool is a class for your preschool age children. This class meets each Sunday, and is a great introduction of the Catholic faith and prayers. This will give them a head start before they begin their future Religious Education classes.
Nursery and Toddlers & 2’s
Toddlers & 2’s and Nursery we also have available during the Sunday, 10:30 am Mass. You will be able to bring your young ones before Mass begins and they will be with a group of loving and caring adults that will care for them for the duration of Mass. The Toddlers & 2’s and Nursery is located in the small Chapel in the lower level of the Church. Children in this group enjoy spending time with other children in the Parish and this is a chance for you to get to know other parents and young children as well.
We are looking forward to meeting you and your family.
