Children's Programs


Childcare is available during the 10:30 am Mass for children aged 1 to 3. 

Our nursery is located in the Extended Day Care classrooms in the portables adjacent to the parking lot and playground during construction.

Our nursery aims to operate year round. As with all programs, there may be last minute cancellations due to instructor illness or abscence. 

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.

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 Julia Rudden at jrudden@stjohnsea.org or Kristin Kent at kkent@stjohnsea.org to learn more.
