Children & Pre-Teens
Young people are important to our church community as they are our future servant-leaders. Here at St. Michael’s, we devote a significant amount of time and resources ministering to them — giving them guidance to know, love, and serve Jesus, and ultimately becoming the missionary disciples every Christian is called to be.
1. Kids’ Kingdom
Kids’ Kingdom is a Liturgy of the Word ministry for children ages 3 to Grade 3. The program happens during the Sunday 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Mass, in which children gather in prayer, sing songs, listen and reflect on the Sunday readings through activities, before joining their families in the sanctuary for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
For more information, please contact Alison Straface at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 403 249 0423 ext. 125.
ROAR: Vacation Bible School 2019
This summer’s Vacation Bible School will be happening Mon-Fri from 9 a.m. to noon on July 8-12 (first week) and July 15-19 (second week). We’re now taking in registrations for children ages 5-10!
To register, visit us in the parish office or email Alison at email@example.com.
Tailored for children in grades 4-6, Roots meets on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. together with Calling Youth for one big Youth Night! It is a place for pre-teens to grow in the faith while having fun and forming friendships through fellowship.
Moms and Tots
Our weekly Moms and Tots group is a ministry for moms with small children. We meet every Friday morning at 9:45 a.m., and we invite all moms with little ones to come and join us for coffee, faith, fellowship, and fun activities for the kids!
We believe that faith and fun can, of course, go together. By joining any of our youth ministries, children are able to hear and apply the life-changing message of the Gospel of our Lord in a level that they could understand and relate to. Plus – whether they are in Kids’ Kingdom, Roots, or Calling Youth – they are sure to meet new friends with whom they can grow together in their faith journey.
Parents are the children’s first teachers of the faith. If you have a heart for kids and feel called by our Lord to share your faith story with the young ones in our parish community, we encourage you to get involved. Contact us at 403 249 0423 or firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
