Children's Liturgy of the Word

Sundays, during the 10:30 am Mass
Parents, if you have children in grades K through 3, this brief liturgy is an excellent introduction to participation in the rituals of the Mass and understanding the Word of God. The scriptures of the day are presented in a simple and interactive way – geared to meet the needs and understanding of the child. Parents are always welcome to accompany their child, check out what it’s all about, and meet our wonderful team of volunteer prayer leaders.
Are YOU interested in being part of the prayer leadership team?

Adults and Teens, if you enjoy children and love the Word of God this ministry is for you! Sharing your faith and liturgical tradition with young children is an enriching experience for everyone – not just the kids. Check the church entrances and the Community Corner for an informational brochure describing this important ministry. To volunteer or for more information please email Brian Hefer or call 651-227-7669 x 311. Lesson plans and training will be provided.


Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd has been referred to as “the gold standard in children’s education” and is offered to children ages 3-5. It engages the entire child - body, mind and spirit - with the mysteries of our faith and takes place during our 10:30 am Mass on Sundays. Focusing on the Church’s scripture, baptism, Eucharist and liturgical calendar in an atrium environment that encourages the child’s imaginative engagement with the symbols of our faith, this program nurtures a close personal relationship between the child and the Good Shepherd.
