Sunday School

Noah's Ark

Sundays, 9:30 AM (Grades 1-8)

Religious Education Classes start promptly at 9:30 am in the church with a family session. Please note each parent will then be responsible for checking his or her child in with the appropriate teacher in the classroom. Classes end at 10:45 am and each child will need to be signed out.

Classes Begin the Last Sunday in September.

Family Masses are at the 11 am Mass and are not required, but participation is highly recommended.

Family Sessions will take the place of the ordinary class, however the entire family is invited and welcome to participate in each event.
We start with a welcoming song in church followed by a brief prayer service to familiarize the child and his/her family with the liturgy and the traditions of our faith. The short liturgical prayer service is not a substitute for the regular Mass, but an instructional worship aid, often accompanied with a kid-friendly picture book geared to younger children and their parents.

We welcome and encourage our parish families to participate in our program and become active members of the OLM community. We share the "Good News" with our students and their families in our liturgical prayer service held nearly every Sunday in the church. We invite all who gather with us on the faith journey to help transform their lives, enabling and enriching them with hope and challenge. We encourage family participation in all of our endeavors. The catechesis is a lifelong process and we strive to build a community of worshiping believers, schooled in the doctrine of our faith.
