Children at Mass
Our parishes enthusiastically welcomes your family to fully celebrate with us. May we suggest…Relax. God has filled our children with wiggles and giggles and this is a blessing to our community. Sit towards the front or aisle where it is easier for little ones to see and hear. Participate together by quietly explaining the Mass parts, sing the hymns and offer the sign of peace. Need to step out and take a break? Feel free to do so, but please come back and join us when you are ready.
Children Mass Resources and Coloring Pages are located in each parish for your convenience in the family room (Annunciation, St. Joseph), gathering space (St. Jude) and back entryway (st. Patrick.)
