Liturgy of the Word with Children
Liturgy of the Word with Children is a celebration of the readings in a setting and language more appropriate to their understanding. It is offered at the 9:45 am Mass. All are welcome: children, Jr./Sr. High helpers, and parents. No registration is required. Catechists and Aides are required to be fingerprinted and attend a CAP session. Liturgy of the Word is not celebrated during the months of June, July and August.
Family Liturgy is a Mass with an emphasis on our young parishioners. The homily is directed toward the children who are encouraged to actively participate. The music is provided by the Children's Choir. Families with children of all abilities are welcome to attend. The Family Liturgy is celebrated on the Second Sunday of each month (October - April) at 9:45 am.

The RCIA Team guides adults as they journey to become full members of the Catholic Church. There are two roles that parishioners play: Catechist and Sponsor. The Diocese provides occasional retreats and other opportunities to learn for both roles. RCIA meets weekly every Tuesday at 7:30 pm in the parish annex, from mid-September until Pentecost Sunday. In addition, Catechists take turns leading a discussion of the current readings with candidates every Sunday from Advent until Passion Sunday.
The RCIC is a part of the Religious Education Program for children who need the introductory sacraments and/or need to catch up to their appropriate religious education grade level.
