Sunday School

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. Children meet in the first and second grade school classrooms. The curriculum is lectionary based and follows the Church calendar. Readings from the Gospel are shared with the children using a children’s Bible with great pictures and stories geared to their level. We use picture books, songs and crafts to help 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 take turns offering 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!
