  • Preparation for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist will be done by using the Blessed curriculum by Dynamic Catholic. All students receiving the sacraments will attend the First Eucharist Retreat on April 4th.  Want to see what we did at the 2018-2019 First Eucharist Retreat?

Each week at the 10:30 Mass, all children will be called out to hear the weekly readings in a kid-friendly format.  

Please sign up to lead a session of Children' Liturgy of the Word here: Children's Liturgy of the Word Sign Up.

This is a wonderful opportunity for children Preschool to 5th grade to participate in a Liturgy of the Word designed especially for them.  We will always be in need of some helpers to lead these liturgies. Helpers can be adults, or teens supervised by adults, and must be certified through the Safeguarding God’s Children program through the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. Please consider helping out with one of the liturgies! We would love to have your help! We will have all of the liturgy planned for you; all you need to do is lead the group.   If you have any questions or would like to sign up to help, please contact Annie Collins. Thank you!
