Aimed at K to 8th grade students. We’re digging in the dirt, singing, praying, playing wild games and, yes, learning, We are blessed with RE teachers who are on fire for kids and the Lord. We have four levels: K-1, 2-3, 4-5, and 6,7,8 Jr. High. This can be a “drop your kids off” event – but, you’re always welcome to stay for the fun! On Sundays when we are in session, it runs from 9:10 to 9:55 am – squeezed right in between masses. watch this year for periodic adult formation offerings at the same time slot. For kids, there are three 7 week unique sessions. This year, 2019/2020 the Fall Session (Sept-Nov.): All God’s Children, The Advent/Christmas Session gets us ready for the big Christmas Eve Mass. and, the Spring Session (Feb.-April) The Kingdom of God

Preparation for First Reconciliation and Eucharist: Loyola Center 6:00 – 7:30 pm

Designed for those children in the 2nd grade up to the 4th grade with the Pastor’s permission. For grade 5 & up see RCIA/C. The Sacramental life of the Church is FULL of GRACE! Seeing it through the eyes of your young one can be a moving revelation for grown ups. At St. Francis Xavier, preparation for the sacraments is a “with your child” activity. At least one family grown up is required to be along at every session – more is always welcome. We create some inter-generational opportunities. It’s a great time!

Faith Kids! new name for Children’s Liturgy of the Word is my favorite time of the week! During our 10:00 am Mass, all the young, and the young at heart, receive the blessing of the assembly to go hear God’s Word with their little ears. We have a fantastic bunch of loving grown up helpers and, this year, we are going to offer some separate activities for the “littles” and the “bigs” who come. The fun begins Sunday, September 8th and goes all the way to June 28th – at the regular 10:00 am Mass only, except for Christmas and Easter. Intended for children K- 5th grade.
