Sunday worship services

Youth Sunday

While every Sunday is Youth and Family Sunday, approximately six times per school year, on the first Sunday of the month during the 10:00 a.m. service, our liturgy is adapted for the children and youth of the parish. Typically, the children’s choir, developed in Sunday school, will sing. They also rehearse at 9:30 a.m. prior to the service so all children are welcome to sing with them, regardless of Sunday school registration. The children will be asked to come forward for a sermon tailored for children of all ages. Youth also participate in this service in a special way, particularly through prayers and readings. Different families are invited to bring up the gifts and individual children age 2nd grade and older are asked to help carry the banner. These Sundays will often provide a special opportunity to celebrate a special seasonal theme and are a memorable time for families. We hope you’ll plan to be a part of them.
