Opportunities for Children in our Parish

Do you wish for your child to be more involved in the parish?  Are you seeking activities that will interest them to come to church and grow in their faith?

Our parish is once again offering the Children’s Liturgy of the Word to children between the ages of 4-7, during the 10:30 AM Mass at St. John’s Church.  Help spread the word, so all the little children can hear the Word of God!  We look forward to sharing the Good News with your child!

Our parish is always looking for new altar servers who are in grades 4 or above and have received First Communion. The next training will be announced – you can download a registration form here.  Trainees will be expected to attend five or six sessions, and then will be commissioned at a Sunday Mass by one of our priests.  For more information about our servers click here.

The Children of Mary Society for boys & girls ages 8 – 13 meets the first Saturday each month from 8:30-11:00 AM in St. Mary Magdalen Meeting Room for movies, crafts, prayers and a snack.
