Amazing Race to Evangelize Retreat 2015

Do you have a 3rd, 4th or 5th grader?  Are they wanting to make new friends; learn more about their faith and have fun at church?  Well, then REACH is for them!!

REACH is a dynamic fellowship ministry that meets twice a month from 6:30 to 8:00PM to engage the elementary youth of our parish.  Through fun games, small and large group activities the youth will experience our Catholic faith in new ways and build lasting friendships with one another that will carry them throughout our Youth Ministry Program.  Reach is a wonderful supplement to our Faith Formation Programs.  Each gathering is a stand alone event, so please come as your schedule allows.  We hope to see you soon!!!

Children's Mass

2016-2017 is the year we are learning all about the Catholic Mass.  What do we do?  Who are the people at Mass?  What are the items used?  And of course Why do we do what we do?  We are excited to give our youth opportunities to be involved in a Mass by attending and participating in the Children's Mass.  We are looking for Lectors, Hospitality Ministers and Gift Bearers.  We even have a Children's Choir.
