Little Lambs

We invite all of our 3 to 6-year-old children to join us for the Little Lambs program during the 10:30 AM masses. This is NOT a CCD class. This program helps the children understand the Sunday Gospels on their level. We pray together, sing songs, play games, read age-appropriate gospel stories, etc. Little Lambs participants line up in the back of the church, follow Father down in the procession, receive a blessing and then head to the parish center. We try to return upstairs shortly after the homily and sit in the front pews of the church so the children have a better view of what’s happening on the altar. Parents gather their children at the end of mass. The program runs from September 16, 2018 through June 10, 2019. We do not meet on the weekends of major holidays and we do take time off during the weeks of First Communions.
