Faith Formation for Children

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Welcome to the Atrium, a prayer space designed to meet the spiritual and developmental needs of children using the Montessori method. By means of the beauty, silence, self-direction and prayer fostered here, the mystery of the child encounters the mystery of God.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word

At certain Masses, children celebrate the Liturgy of the Word just like the entire congregation, except they get to move and interact in a way appropriate for their age level.  After the homily and before the Eucharistic Prayers, the children return to the main worship area and rejoin their families.

Childcare Center

Our faith-filled Mass Ministry for Children offers childcare and faith formation for families with children ages 1 to 9 years of age during the 9:3am and the 5pm (Life Teen) Masses in the downtown church.
