Children's Programs

Children's Programs Survey

Children ages 5-12 are invited to participate in our Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) program.

For younger children, the options for Sunday School (ages 4-5) or Nursery (for ages 1-3) have been offered in the past. We are looking for parent input about offering Sunday School and Nursery for our parish's youngest children. Please answer this survey to provide feedback on these options, so we can plan for the needs of our parish families!

Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)

Children, ages 5 to 10, are invited to participate in Children's Liturgy of the Word at the 10:30 Mass. - Most Sundays, October through May. As with all programs, sometimes last minute cancellation due to volunteer teacher illness may occur.

CLOW will be continuing over the summer months, with sessions planned for: May 26, June 2, 9, 23, July 7, 21, August 4, 18, September 8, 15.

Volunteers will be needed to assist, which consists of walking out with the kids at the beginning of mass, helping to administer the lesson which is already planned, then walking back with the children in time for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

If you are interested in helping with this ministry please contact Daniel Pelfrey CEFF@stjohnsea.org

Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) is a program for children ages 5 to 10. They are invited to attend during the liturgy of the word portion of mass. Led by two parent volunteer teachers, they go to a classroom on the ground floor of the school building and will return after about 20 minutes. There, the children will learn about the readings of the day and the gospel, at their own level, and will have the chance to ask questions, sing songs and hear stories.  Parents are welcome to tag along.

Interested in volunteering as a CLOW leader or assistant? Contact Daniel Pelfrey at ceff@dtjohnsea.org to learn more.
