Sunday Morning PreschoolAge 3 through Kindergarten (as of September 1, 2017)
"Mustard Seed" is the name of the Sunday morning preschool program for children ages 3 through Kindergarten. The program is scheduled for 24 weeks, during the 8:30 and 10:30 Masses. It begins in mid-September and works around the school district's schedules.
The ages are divided into three sections: 3 year olds are the "Seedlings", planted in the ground by God. The Pre-Kindergartners are the "Sprouts", because they have sprouted from the ground after hearing God's word. And finally we have the "Blossoms", the Kindergartners, smiling and ready to go out into the world and water the other seeds with their love of God. This lesson is reinforced each week with their theme song, sung before they leave, music and story time.
The children begin in a large group setting for prayer, story time, and music. The individual classes have a set program that contains a Bible story, craft, prayer, and game. An important part of our program is teaching the young children about their church community. They talk and pray about God's creations, their church friends, the church year, and extra activities that are offered throughout the year.
Mustard Seed classes offer the children an opportunity to feel connected with their church. When they attend Mass, go to a fish fry, or are at the annual Church Carnival, it is heartwarming seeing their response when they recognize their instructor or classmate. Our goal is to make learning about God fun and their wanting to come back for more.
