Our Sunday School uses the fairly new Montessori based Godly Play program. It is interactive, using manipulative materials to allow children the opportunity to participate, respond, question, and share their thoughts. Godly Play is bible based, and follows the liturgical church calendar. The children develop concepts and learn a great deal in a comfortable, cheerful and fun atmosphere.
Additionally, all the children participate in a monthly Children's Mass, doing the readings, acolyting, bringing up the offerings, even writing their own Prayers of the People, and sitting at the altar with Father D. for a special children's sermon. It is really quite an amazing and beautiful service, and the children love it. (So do the rest of us!)
Children attend the 10 am service with their families. There are Children’s Prayer Books and activity bags available for them if they would like to use them. At the Consecration, children join Father D. on the altar, receive Communion with him, then leave with their teacher to attend Godly Play which lasts about 45 minutes. Currently our class serves children ages 5 to 10.
Registration is ongoing throughout the year. Please call the office for information, 473 0273, or register after the 10 am Sunday service. You can also register using the online registration form. Print it out, fill it in, bring it to church when your child is ready to join us.
Sunday School begins on Oct 2. Parents of new children are welcome to visit the classroom and meet the teacher before their child starts. Please contact the office or the teacher to make sure we will be available to help you. If you have questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us.
