Our Goal

To reach the hearts, teach minds & inspire the souls of parents and the youngest of our parish family by using the Sunday Mass’ Scripture Theme. To practice contemplation, praise, reflection, sharing & devotion. To cultivate hope, love & motivation so they may continue to enhance their own Faith, while nurturing our parish’s future.


Class Format

1. What was really said on Sunday? (Simple look at the theme for the Sunday Mass the day before.)
2. Parent & Me Praise! (Sharing the theme with simple ASL  Sign, Song and  or movement.)
3. Parent Pow-Wow w/ children alongside (A Sharing of thoughts/ideas of how to carry out the Scripture  (Theme for the rest of the week.)
4. Prayer of Thanksgiving Marian Song or reciting one decade of the Rosary in Song.  (Directors will adapt to parents and children's needs)

"Through Mary, we come to her Son more easily."  ~ Pope John Paul II
