Our children have a dedicated worship space in “Little Fitch” (the smaller partition of the parish hall), where they have a small altar with a cross and candles. They help to light and extinguish the candles and are led through songs and prayers using a printed Children’s Chapel program.
A simplified lesson is presented before the children are dismissed to their various classrooms for age–specific programs and crafts. St Mary’s has historically dedicated one Sunday to Children’s Sunday. The children serve as Greeters, Acolytes, Ushers, and Readers.
This program has been on hiatus while we are engaged in the discernment process for a new Rector and re–establishment of our Sunday School program, but we look forward to reinstating it in the future.
