Sunday School is offered weekly in conjunction with the Sunday Mass. There are groups suitable for younger and older children.
Our Sunday School is creative and active. We structure our programs on the belief that children already have a relationship with God, and it is our responsibility and joy to nurture that relationship and to help the children connect their faith to the life of ‘the people of God.’
We believe that to help them grow in reverence and thoughtfulness, in care and kindness we need to give to our children opportunities to work with things of beauty and value and to experience God with all of their senses. Therefore, in their imaginative play and creative work, we insist on only using natural materials, things that are valuable and have worth. What the children do in Sunday School is their offering to God and their prayer.
For kids aged 10 to 14, the Youth Group meets in the parish hall on every 1st and 3rd Saturday from 7 to 8:30pm. Youth aged 15+ are invited as animators and helpers!
The River Playgroup is a Waldorf-inspired group for children 5 and under and their caregivers. It takes place in the parish hall from 10:00-11:30 a.m. on Wednesday mornings. We emphasize play with all-natural toys and crafting materials and provide a healthy snack!
