Sunday Morning Children’s Programs

Children’s Liturgy of the Word (Gym) – Children’s Liturgy provides a way for the gospel to come to life for our K-5 students. Children are dismissed just prior to the start of Mass to hear the readings and message and return after the homily  Here, they are learning that there are many pathways to reach God!

 

Here is one of the children in our Sunday Morning Preschool program coloring a picture about Jesus teaching us to serve others.

Child Care Room (St. Andrew Room) – Have you stopped in to see our  child care room on Sunday mornings? You’ll find toddlers busy playing, doing puzzles, looking at books and having a great time while Mom and Dad are enjoying Mass. This drop-in program is available for children ages 12– 36 months during 9 and 11 AM Mass. We encourage you to give it a try!

Sunday Morning Preschool (St. Thomas and St. Jude classrooms) – Our Sunday morning Preschool program is available during 9 and 11 AM Masses. St. Mary’s staff members are eager to spend the hour with your child, engaging them in song, stories, and activities to help build the foundation of their faith, while you are freer to participate in Mass. This is a drop-in program for 3, 4 and young 5-year-olds, not yet in kindergarten.  Come join the children who have already discovered this new program!

Registration is not necessary for any of these programs. We hope your children will take advantage of these new offerings at St. Mary’s! If you have any questions, please call Sherry Link at (248) 243-0259 or email Sherry Link.
