Children’s Formation 


Mass Options

You are more than welcome to bring your children to Mass. During the 11 AM Mass, we have the following options should parents choose to participate. Nursery for ages 1-4 years is held in Barry Hall behind the church in the Disciples Room. Drop off begins at 10:45 AM, and pick up is directly following the conclusion of Mass.

We also offer Children’s Liturgy of the Word during the 11 AM Mass for children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade. The children are dismissed following the opening rites of Mass to a room in Barry Hall where they hear and discuss the readings in words they can understand. Parents are welcome to accompany them. They will rejoin with their families during the offertory collection for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

Emmaus (Family Faith Formation)

Emmaus is for every stage of life and generation. Whether you are single, married, young, or "wise beyond years" you are welcome with open arms to fellowship and strengthen your faith with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. 

These events are for parishioners of all ages! Children attending must be accompanied by an adult. Students in grades PK-8 meet in classes, divided by grade level.

Adults gather separately, for a lecture and discussion-based program, where they are encouraged and equipped. This adult, continuing education component is key to the transmission of the Catholic faith in the home and in our world
