Very young children may not be ready for Mass, but they are ready to learn about God’s love for them and His wonderful gifts! St. Barnabas Religious Education Ministries offer programs for these young children. An Pre-School and Kindergarten Religion Readiness Program for children 3-5 years old and we offer a Tiny Tots Program for children 6 months to 2 ½ years on Sunday mornings from 8:45 am – 10:00 am (or until Mass is dismissed). All programs teach young children about the love God has for them as children of God and the love God has for our families, friends, His church and creation. It is the 1st step in with the full community in the celebration of the liturgy. It is Little Church on their level. We pray together, listen to stories of God’s love, share in a snack together and create a craft project each week related to the theme of the lessons.
Our classes are held in the school on Sunday mornings starting in September – May. We have openings for all classes. You are encouraged to bring your child(ren) for his or her special celebration of God’s love.
