Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)

NOT OFFERING AT THIS TIME DUE TO COVID
 

Children’s Liturgy of the Word is offered at 8:30 and 10:30 Mass from late September through mid-June.  This program allows children ages 4-12 the opportunity to leave the main assembly after the opening prayer and gather for a more age-appropriate, engaging proclamation and exploration of the Scriptures.



Sunday Morning Faith Formation Classes (Sunday School)

NOT OFFERING AT THIS TIME DUE TO COVID

Sunday morning faith formation classes for children in grades preschool—5 will meet on Sundays from late September through June (excluding holidays). Classes are held from 9:30-10:20a.m. in the Benincasa Center. We offer three classes: Preschool - K,  1st - 2nd grade,  and 3rd- 5th grade.  Classes begin in September, 2020.

The younger children’s classes use a curriculum called Godly Play.  The teachers and children prayerfully and playfully explore parables, sacred stories, the sacraments, prayer and liturgy.

The older children’s class thoughtfully and creatively explore our faith through the use of a 3-year curriculum called “Finding God.”  They also participate in service projects throughout the year, as a hands-on way of living out their faith.

* IMPORTANT Note for First Grade Students:  All First Grade students who do not attend a Catholic School, and are planning to participate in First Communion in the Second Grade, are required by the Archdiocese to attend Sunday School Faith Formation classes during the First Grade.
