Sunday School – Parents promise at their child’s baptism to raise their child in the practice of the faith, to keep God’s commandments as Christ taught us by loving God and our neighbor. Sunday School is a Religious Education program for our youngest children. This ministry is a fun, Christ-centered, hour-long program that takes place during the 10AM Mass twice a month. Each week an age appropriate Bible story is introduced. Catechists use books, crafts, and music to enhance the weekly lesson. Any child who will be three or four years old or in kindergarten before September 1st may participate in this ministry. Registration is going on right now for the Fall of 2017.
Our Sunday School format will remain the same for 2017-2018 as it proved to be an effective and dynamic change for our program!
Classes will be meeting twice a month from September-April. Students will arrive check-in before Mass (9:55 AM) and you will pick them up after Mass.
During Sunday School, the students will be grouped in mixed-age groups, allowing for siblings to be together and for more interaction as a Sunday School community. Our Group Leaders will travel with one group, all year. The Station Leaders will run the activities for each rotation of the groups.
We are in need of many volunteers. Please consider assisting our Ministry with your talents. You will need to have a background check completed and attend Virtus Training by September. More information will be sent out to our volunteers in June. Please contact Sheila Galloro for more information firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sunday School families planted 10 large flower pots around the Parish Center and school. We need help with watering throughout the summer. Families can sign up to water; they need to check out a key from the parish office to turn on the hoses-watering cans are available outside Parish Office. Please click on the Sign Up Genius, so families can sign up to help out with watering this summer.
