Children’s Liturgy

“Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” (Mt.19:13)

Pre-school Children (English)

For children ages 3 to 6. This class for pre-school children takes place during the 9:30 am Divine Liturgy, with children leaving the Divine Liturgy at the Small Entrance and returning at the Cherubic Hymn.

Elementary and Junior High Program

For children ages 6 and up, attending Elementary School or Junior High. Classes take place every Sunday, beginning September 15,  at 10:30 am (immediately after the 9:30 am Divine Liturgy) and finish at 11:30 am.  These classes, taught in English, are open to children who attend either the English or Ukrainian Divine Liturgies. Children from both Liturgies are encouraged to attend!

First Solemn Communion Classes

Those children who are ages 8 and up (Grade Two) will follow the program suitable for preparing them for their First Confession and Solemn Holy Communion. The date for Solemn Holy Communion has been set for Sunday, April 5, 2020 (Palm Sunday).
Two options are offered this year:
1. Sundays from 10:30 to 11:30 am, beginning September 15, 2019 (taught in English). These classes will run throughout the year during the same time-frame as the other Sunday School Classes, which occur between the two regular Sunday Liturgies.
2. Saturdays, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm, beginning Saturday, January 11, 2020 (taught in English).

Monthly Children’s Liturgy

On the last Sunday of each month, at the 9:30 am Divine Liturgy, children and youth participate by helping with the responses, singing the hymns and reading the epistle. The homily is directed toward the children, who are invited to sit in the front pew of the church.
