Our belief is that there are no disabled souls and that all persons deserve to be fully included as members of the community and all have gifts regardless of physical or cognitive limitations. Amazing Grace Ministry exists to provide opportunities for inclusion and true fellowship for persons with special needs, their families/supports, friends, and community members.
Children’s Liturgy of the Word takes place during the 9:00am and 11:00am Masses on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month during the school year. All children in grades K-4 are invited to attend. Before the Liturgy of the Word, the children are led by the CLOW leaders to Sheltz Hall to hear the Sunday readings from the Children’s Lectionary. The children are led back to the church during the offertory so they may participate in the Liturgy of the Eucharist with their families.
Circle of Grace continues the effort first begun on September 1, 2011, in compliance with the USCCB Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People. Cardinal DiNardo has directed that every parish in the Archdiocese implement the Circle of Grace, a program which provides faith-based safe environment lessons for children and youth in kindergarten through the 12th grades. This annual program provides grade-specific lessons each year to help children and young people develop the skills to protect themselves from sexual abuse. An essential parent component complements the grade-specific lessons.
Priority registration is for children of adult volunteers who are committed to helping all 5 days. Nursery/PreK available for committed adult volunteers’ children. Discounted Fee: $25
Teen assistants are entering 7th – 12th grade. Fee: $10
