Sunday School -1

"It  is not  the will of my Father who is in heaven that any one of these little ones should perish" (Matthew 18:14). 

Sunday School welcomes Catholic children. They are allocated  to Junior,  Intermediate,  or Senior  classes based  on  their  age, from  four  years  old  to  twelve. There are classes for 8:15am, 10:00am, and 12:00pm Sunday Masses.

The mission of Sunday School is to  bring up children in  the Church, and  introduce  them  to Jesus  in  the Gospels,  to  God our  Father  in  the  Scriptures,  to  His entire family and household the Church, and how we actually meet Him in the sacraments. Our goal is not only to bring kids to learn more about Jesus the same way they  learn  about  science, math, and English  at school, we also plant little seeds in their hearts that will grow into beautiful fruits so that they will want to come back to Jesus every Sunday for  the  rest of their lives and will be most pleasing and fragrant  to  God when He sends them the Holy Spirit at Confirmation.

Jesus Himself said, "It  is not  the will of my Father who is in  heaven that any one of these little ones should perish" (Matthew 18:14). Likewise, it is not the will of any of us that any of our children be lost, especially as they grow out of Sunday School. Therefore, we take  great  care  and consideration  when  we  admit  new  teachers  and  TAs into our  ministry.  Our teachers and TAs are those who intimately know and love (and continue to love and learn about) the Words of God and the work of the Spirit in the life of the Church. Many of them have been brought up in Sunday School as children and have come back as TAs (and eventually become teachers)  and pass on what they have learned.

Sunday School is not a daycare or club or a course... it takes place during Mass. Therefore, in anything that we do, we always draw from the liturgy and we always lead the children back to the liturgy where Jesus meets them in the breaking of bread. The parish is where learning, prayer, and good  deeds meet the life of the Church, and the life of the Church is a taste of the life of the Trinity.

Our ministry  cannot flourish  without  the support of parents who bring their  children to Mass and take their children home to deepen and practice what they have learned in Sunday School. We also need the  support  of the parish in providing us the  space and resources required.  We ask for your continual prayer and support, not only for good, loving, and faithful teachers, but also for the growth of God's children entrusted to our care.
