The Sunday Service for the Children — 10:00 am
At 9:30am, children under the age of 14 (prior to their confirmation) gather with the priest to hear stories of reverence, oftentimes drawing from the Bible. Story time is followed by a service specifically for the children. The entire service lasts about 10 minutes and helps to provide a place for prayer and reflection appropriate for these ages. Children are then welcome to stay in the common rooms during the adult-only worship service.
The Act of Consecration of Man is the centerpiece of sacramental life. In addition, there are six other sacraments that give renewal and direction to the natural course of our lives.
