Students in kindergarten through eighth grade attend mass together weekly, and are involved in both the preparation and celebration of the liturgy. Our children's choir performs at these masses, as well as the monthly family liturgy on Sunday in church.
Boys and girls in sixth through eighth grade are encouraged to become altar servers for our weekly school Mass, and parish Sunday masses, weddings and funerals. In late spring of each year all SJS and CCD students in fifth grade and up will be invited to attend an altar server training and join the altar server rotation list. New servers are always welcome.
Students in grades four through eight may join the children's choir, as a singer or handbell ringer. The children's choir performs at all student masses, as well as the monthly family liturgy in church on the first Sunday of the month at the 9:30 Mass. Music director Margie Shiel and Michael Crisci (handbells) practice with the children's choir members weekly after school. New members are welcome at any time.
Children may participate with their parents in the Family Liturgy team ministry. This group prepares and celebrates the monthly family liturgy Mass on Sunday in church. Contact Pam Francisco for more information on joining the Family Liturgy team.
