To the Parents of Young Children

To the Parents of Young Children

  • God put the wiggle in children–don’t feel you have to suppress those wiggles in God’s house.
  • Quietly explain the parts of the Mass and actions of the priest, musicians, ushers, etc.
  • Sing the hymns, pray and voice the responses. Children learn behavior by mimicking you.
  • Consider sitting toward the front where it is easier for your little ones to engage.
  • If you want to leave the sanctuary with your child, feel free to do so, but please come back. As Jesus said, “Let the children come to me."
  • Nursery care for children 6 months to 2 years of age is available during the 8:30am and 11am Sunday Masses.
  • Sunday School classes for children begin at age 3 and are held during the 8:30am and 11am Sunday Masses.
