We are dedicated to connecting your Kindergarten to Eighth Grade child to Jesus Christ and His Church. Rooted in the love of the Gospel, we aim to provide your child with a safe, positive environment to learn our Catholic Faith. Religious Education classes will be held on Wednesdays from 7pm-8pm at the St. Joseph Fullerton school. Classes begin September 18th.
Upon request, we offer a home study program for those families with busy schedules. The home study program allows parents and their children an opportunity to study the faith together.
WHAT IS CHILDREN’S LITURGY OF THE WORD?
Children’s Liturgy of the Word is an introduction to God’s Word for the younger children of our parish about why scripture is important to our lives. During Children’s Liturgy of the Word, volunteers celebrate the Liturgy of the Word in language geared towards children from a special Lectionary for children. The readings and message remain the same as the Sunday Mass to allow parents to discuss the readings with their children.
What happens during Children’s Liturgy of the Word?
Children begin Mass with their families, and after the opening prayer the celebrant or deacon will call the children to the altar for a special blessing before dismissing them. The Children follow adult volunteers to the Upper Room for prayer, scripture reading, discussion, and activity. After the homily, the children re-enter the church for the offertory and remainder of Mass.
Why send your children for Children’s Liturgy of the Word?
Consider Children’s Liturgy of the Word as a tool to further your child’s understanding of scripture and a springboard for family discussion.
Volunteer teachers and assistants are needed!
