“Youth Ministry is the response of the Christian Community to the needs of young people and their families fostering their development as Catholic Christians and drawing them into responsible participation in the life, mission and ministry of the Church.”
Currently here at Our Lady of the Assumption Parish we are offering programs for children in JK to Grade 8. We are working on developing High School and Young Adult ministries; please feel free to send your comments and suggestions to Melissa at email@example.com.
Children gather every Monday evening for a meal, and an evening full of fun, faith, and friendship.
Special Events for both the children and their families will be planned throughout the year. Stay tuned for more details.
Youth Ministry Leaders
“And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, “Master, you delivered to me five talents; here I have made five talents more.” His master said to him, “Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.” Matthew 25:20-21
All members of our Parish family are invited to use their God given gifts and talents to be stewards of faith to the youth. We all have a part to play in the faith formation of the youth of this parish. In what ways can you share your time with them… cook, clean, teach, pray, etc. Please call Melissa at the parish office ext. 237 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Li’l Saints meet during Sunday morning 11:00 am mass! The children come together to read the Gospel and then creatively use activities such as arts and crafts to better explain it to them. At special times of the year there are activities to engage them and help them learn about our faith. For example, during Advent they helped to light the Advent wreath candles and at Christmas they brought baby Jesus to the manger. At Pentecost the children made Tongues of Fire headbands and in May they created a flower crown for Mother Mary!
The Lil Saints group is an excellent way to get your children involved in something fun and engaging while the adults are enjoying the Sunday morning mass. Any children from ages 3 to 7 are welcome to join us! We are also currently looking for adult volunteers so if you are interested in serving the parish by working with these awesome young kids please contact Paula Rankin by leaving a message at the parish office. We would be grateful to have your help! We look forward to having your children join us at Li’l Saints!
