program is an amazing way for children to both learn about God and also
get to actually experience God's presence. Our catechists have spent
hundreds of hours being trained to teach our children and provide the
environment for them to grow spiritually. They present Biblical stories,
hands on experience with the liturgical treasures seen in church, and
time for prayer and contemplation.
we resume our fall program, here is a reminder of all the Sunday School
opportunities: Toddlers up to 3 years are in the Nursery (Good Shepherd
Building north of the playground). 3 - 6 yrs are in the Bethlehem
Atrium (Havermale Hall), 6 - 9 yrs in the Nazareth Atrium (Good Shepherd
Building), 9 -12 years are in Edwards Hall (parish hall) and teenagers
will continue in the SHACK room (Good Shepherd Building).
How fortunate we are to have so many dedicated people involved in helping our young people grow in Christ!
