Children's and Youth Ministries

Children's and Youth Ministries are undergoing some major changes.We are adopting what is called Family Formation  and includes Kindergarten through 6th grades. There are two main components to Family Formation: once a month family nights and home lessons. On the first Wednesday of each month both parents and children meet at the Rosman Center. The children will go to class while the parents listen to a speaker and receive instructions for the home lessons. During the rest of the month, parents will instruct their own children on their own schedule. You can view a sample home lesson here.

In addition to Family Formation we will be adding Children's Liturgy of the Word during the 10:30 Mass each week. The "Sunday Saints" will leave the mass at the end of the Introductory Rites and return at the offertory. They will have their own bible story, 'homily' and songs. No registration is necessary.

The new format of Family Formation allows us to give the adolescent parishioners their own youth night. They will meet three Wednesdays each month for fellowship, music, prayer and learning. 

Registration form is available here for Family Formation and Defenders Youth Group.
