children at churchA Message to Celebrate Children at Mass

To the Parents of Young Children:

  • Relax! God put wiggle in little ones; do not feel you have to suppress it.
  • Maybe try sitting towards the front where it is easier for little ones to see what is going on.
  • Quietly explain what is going on during the Mass.
  • Sing the hymns, pray the responses and listen. Children learn how to behave in Mass by copying you.
  • If you need to leave Church or sit for a while in the Jubilee Memorial (where there is sound from the Mass), please know you are welcome back anytime
  • Please note there is now a bookshelf with kids’ books in the back of church, please feel free to have your little one take a book to read during mass and replace it when done.

To the Members of Our Parish:

  • The way we welcome children directly affects the way they understand God, the Church and Jesus’ love for them.
  • The sounds children make in Church are a hopeful, glorious melody. We are pro-life and all life (and their sounds) is welcome!
  • Please smile warmly or offer a word of encouragement to parents and grandparents who have made the effort to bring their young, active children to Mass.

Medical Symbol“You understand, O Lord, remember me and care for me.”  ~Jeremiah 15:15

Pills are often considered the first line of defense but with colds and flu, they will not help since antibiotics are for bacterial infections only and cold/flu germs are viral infections. Some think antibiotics help with symptoms but inappropriate use of medication only trains germs to become drug resistant. This means that when you do need the drug, it will be ineffective and you will need a more expensive, stronger drug – if one is available. Whenever you do receive a prescription, use it as directed and complete the course to be sure to kill all the bacteria in your system. Using your meds incorrectly only hurts you physically and financially.
