Children’s Liturgy of the Word

Children’s Liturgy of the Word takes place during the 9:30am Mass every Sunday from October to May, with the exception of Christmas and Easter Sunday. Children’s liturgy is intended for children in Kindergarten through Grade 4. Children and their catechists are called forth during the Mass prior to the Liturgy of the Word. They reverently enter the side chapel to hear God’s Word proclaimed in the sacred scriptures in age-appropriate Readings. After the readings, the catechist offers a simple homily to the children.

Little Lambs Mothers’ Group

Are you a mom looking to build authentic, Christ-centered friendships for both yourself and your little ones?  Each week, Little Lambs Mothers’ Group offers a simple, faith-based preschool lesson, a time of prayer before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, and playtime with warm coffee and conversation. We meet each Wednesday from September to May for 8:30 AM mass (for those who are able) and then begin the lesson at 9:30 AM in the Education Center. Our activities are focused on toddler-aged children, but all ages are welcome.

Please reach out to us at for more information or to join our email list. We look forward to praying and playing with you!
