The first catechists in any child’s life are the family members with whom he or she lives. What happens at home – both positive and negative – provides lessons for life. In the family, faith is shared as part of the unfolding of daily life. The home or “domestic church” provides a real place in which a child learns to live his or her faith as well as understanding it. Our goal is to create a program of lifelong faith formation that is centered in and flows out of the events of Church life. It embraces all ages and generation, promotes faith growth at home and promotes participation in Church life. Our Children’s Church program is held each Sunday at the 11:00 am Liturgy on the Hikes Lane Campus. The Children are called forward at the beginning of Liturgy to receive a blessing and then recess to our Annex and have dialogue and activities that support the Sunday Readings on a level that they can internalize God’s Word.
