Liturgical Component

We want to engage children in the Mass so they understand it, and participation is the way to make this happen. We want them to understand that their actions and gestures are meaningful and help them learn what it means to be a responsible (and responsive) member of the assembly.

Children in 3rd and 4th grades participate in scheduled Ministry Days at the 9 a.m. Masses. The children serve as ministers of hospitality, serving as greeters, ushers and gift-bearers.

Please be sure to note when your day is and make it a priority. Through this type of learning, your child will become comfortable with “full and active participation” in his or her faith.
