KIDs at holy eucharist

"The Church looks to the young; or rather the Church in a special way sees herself in the young."

Pope Saint John Paul II


With great joy, we welcome our young families whether your family is new to the community, returning, or just starting formal faith formation, we welcome you to our programs..


While parents/guardians are the primary guide in their children's Faith, Holy Eucharist aims to offer resources and opportunities through our sessions to support this process for families to connect, grow and live out the Catholic faith.

Time travelers - Kindergarten through 5th

(aka ChILDREN'S WORD)

We offer children in grades Kindergarten –5th the opportunity to hear the Liturgy of the Word (readings and Homily) in a vibrant, exciting program at an age appropriate level during Mass. Children arrive at Mass along with their families and the children are invited forward to gather with a trained volunteer and depart for their program. Children are returned to their parents after the Homily for the remainder of the Mass. No previous registration or payment is required.


Time Travelers (aka Children's Liturgy of the Word) meets September through May.  We offer Time Travelers every week during the 8:30am and 10:30am Masses on Non-LIFT weekends, and we offer Time Travelers at all Masses on LIFT weekends.
