Overview of the Children's Program

We are pleased to offer a Christian Formation program for children, ages three to 12, which adapts to their needs as they grow. We utilize the Montessori-based The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. Classes run on Sundays, beginning at 9:45 a.m., September through May, and ending around 10:30 a.m. when the children join their parents and grandparents worshipping at the 10 a.m. liturgy for the distribution of Holy Communion.

Children learn about events in the Bible and the geography of the Holy Land. They learn about the liturgy and the meaning of Holy Communion. They learn about compassionate and loving service.

By accommodating various learning styles, we are able to support the spiritual development of all children. We build on the belief that children have a special capacity to experience the presence of God. The classrooms are warm, attractive and safe, while the lessons foster a sense of wonder and love for God.

Children meet in one of three classrooms, divided by level pre-kindergarten to kindergarten, first through third grade and fourth through sixth grade.
