Family & Children’s Ministries

Family Nights

Our family is where we learn to relate with each other, sacrifice for others and, most importantly, love one another. It is also where we develop our sense of participation, justice and other skills important in a well-functioning society. The family is often called the domestic or the first church. “The well-being of the individual person and of both human and Christian society is closely bound up with the healthy state of the community of marriage and the family,” explains Gaudium et Spes, (The Church in the Modern World). Catholic social teaching urges that parents be supported in their effort to raise well-formed, healthy children. So come Worship and play together as a family.

Children’s Liturgy


The first half of the Mass is the Liturgy of the Word where we listen to readings from the Bible, followed by the Homily where the priest speaks to the congregation. Both the readings and the homily are aimed more towards an adult audience, which young children might find hard to understand. This lack of understanding may cause children to become bored, which might make church a negative experience.

Children’s Liturgy is the Liturgy of the Word for Children. We read the Sunday Gospel at a level the children can understand and enjoy. We enrich this with discussion, prayer, and hands on activities.Our aim is to make the children’s experience of church meaningful.
