Our Sunday morning preschool classes are for children ages 4-6, and they are introduced to our loving God through a series called "Stories of God's Love".

Dates:  Sundays from October through Palm Sunday (full schedule below)

Time:  During 10:00 a.m. Mass

Location:  Church social hall

Cost:  $35 for year

Theme:  "Stories of God's Love"

We are fortunate to have Mattia Meyer-Dix who donates her time in service to our parish children. We are very grateful to this young teacher.  The series is designed specifically for preschool children to support parents in educating their children about the Catholic faith.  It helps children develop positive attitudes about themselves, family and friends by discovering and learning more about the many gifts, talents and abilities that God has provided.  The series uses taking turns, listening, helping, sharing, loving and thanking others to teach the practice of Christian actions toward others. Children will learn through stories, songs and other participation experiences.  We will begin to teach prayers to help them gain knowledge and friendship with Jesus.
