CHILDREN IN CHURCH
Suggestions for our families with young children:
Relax! God put the wiggle in children; don’t feel you have to suppress it in God’s house. All are welcome.
Sit toward the front where it is easier for your little ones to see and hear what’s going on at the altar. They tire of seeing the backs of others’ heads.
Quietly explain the parts of the service and actions of the priest, altar servers, choir, etc.
Sing the hymns, pray and voice the responses. Children learn liturgical behavior by copying you.
If you need to leave the service with your child, feel free to do so, but please come back. As Jesus said, “Let the children come to me.”
Remember that the way we welcome children in the church directly affects the way they respond to the Church, to God and to one another. Let them know that they are at home in this house of worship.
Please let your child pick up one of our kid’s bags in the entry.
