The Children's Rosary is a prayer group movement that was begun out of love for Our Lady and Her Son. Jesus tells us "Truly, I say to you unless you turn and become like children you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven" (Matthew 18:3).
The Children's Rosary is an effort to begin in parishes rosary prayer groups composed of children and led by children. Through prayer of the Rosary Our Lady will guide our young people while at the same time sanctify families and Parishes.
Please find our scheduled meeting and more information on: https://childrensrosary.org
St Cecilia's Choir
St. Cecilia's Choir began in September of 2019 as a youth initiative at the parish. Its aims are to bring the beauty of sacred music together with the joys of fellowship for young women and girls in the parish.
The choir is open to 20 young girls and ladies, with any level of background in singing. The highlights of the choir's 2021-2022 program will be the Christmas Eve and Easter Sunday Masses.
Bible Storytime - suspended
This program is run concurrent with the Mom's Prayer Group to allow our mothers to participate in faith formation activities without worrying about daycare.
Children get to explore the Bible and do activities which tie into the stories they read and the liturgical calendar as we go throughout the year.
Due to volunteer limits, only spots for ages 4-8 are available at this time. Inquire with the Faith Formation Office to ask about spots.
Infertility Support Group
