Elementary Catechesis is for children first grade through fifth grade. We meet weekly on Wednesday nights during the school year from 6:30-8:00 PM.
We will learn from the Spirit of Truth Curriculum from Sophia Institute Press. Spirit of Truth covers the breadth of the Catechism in a rich and age-appropriate way through vivid sacred art reflections, stories of the saints, games, role-plays, and critical thinking questions.
There are many volunteer opportunities including catechist, catechists assistants, and hall monitors. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Gabbie Geraty at email@example.com or 952-374-5065.
First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion Preparation
The typical age for children to receive their First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion is during second grade. Our sacramental preparation program includes:
· Informational parent meeting where parents receive important information about the sacraments and how to best prepare their child
· A retreat/workshop for parent and child to attend together.
Children's Liturgy of the Word
Children in kindergarten and first grade are invited to join us on Sundays during the 10:30 AM Mass for Children’s Church. This ministry is designed to provide a quality liturgical experience for children, and to proclaim scripture in a way that children will be able to understand and live out.
The Sunday Readings and Gospel are proclaimed from the Children’s Lectionary. During the offertory, children return to the assembly and complete the celebration of the Mass with their families.
Children’s Church is offered during the school year on select Sundays during the 10:30 AM Mass, excluding major liturgical feasts and other holidays.
Adults are invited to share their time and talents. Visit the Volunteer Sign Up page by CLICKING HERE.
