|Welcome to Sunday School!
Sunday school is available for children ages 3 through
Kindergarten during both the 8:30am and 10:30am Sunday Masses during the school
year. The children meet in the first and
second grade school classrooms. The
curriculum is lectionary based and follows the Church calendar. We read the Gospel readings from Mass using a
children’s Bible with great pictures and stories geared to their level. We use picture books, songs and crafts to
help to reinforce the Gospel readings.
We also celebrate feast days, learn about the saints and the different
parts of the liturgical year. We will
make puppets, decorate masks, make ornaments and color our own Bible
storybook. We will also use dramatic
play to act out Bible stories and the lives of the saints.
During each Sunday school class, we have a classroom prayer
cloth that we pray at together and we take turns offering up our own intentions. This is a very special time in class where
children can offer up prayers for sick family members, family members who have
passed away and their pets.
Your child’s class will become a group of friends that they
will look forward to seeing at Sunday school, Mass, hospitality and other
church events. It is also a great place
for parents to meet other parents with children the same age.
Your child will have a greater understanding of the Mass
when they attend with you and a better understanding of the teachings of the
Bible because at Sunday school, everything is geared toward their level. We work hard to make Sunday school fun!
