Children ages preschool-Grade 5 are invited to leave the church after the Opening Prayer for their own gospel message and activities relating to that week’s gospel. They also receive their own “Children’s Bulletin” with activities relating to that week’s gospel message.
This program takes place during the Sunday 10:00 a.m. Mass at St. Bartholomew Church and during the Sunday 11:30 a.m. Mass at St. Bridget Church.
Volunteers work on a rotating schedule and are provided the materials and information needed to plan the lesson.
Parents can accompany their children and assist the leader whenever they wish. The children are very enthusiastic in their participation and this also gives their parents the quiet time for reflection and prayer during the Mass.
