Young Families


The Young Families Ministry offers a faith-filled, supportive community for families raising young children, ages 0 to 5, in the Catholic faith. Monthly potluck brunches every 3rd Saturday include prayer, Scripture, and sharing with other parents, as well as joyful catechesis with storytime and music for the young children. Quarterly service opportunities allow families to share their time and treasure with the marginalized in our society. Participation in feast day celebrations and other liturgical events gives families the chance to engage in parish life. And this fall, two new Bible Studies, one for moms and one for dads, will be starting up. These groups will be open to mothers and fathers of all generations - please come share your wisdom and friendship with us. Expectant parents and older children are always welcome at all ministry events!
