Sunday school will be offered on the 3 rd or second last Sunday of the month during the 9am Mass beginning October 23. Sunday school takes place in the parish centre and begins at 8:50am – so we have time to explore the gospel and work on our activities. We will be back upstairs for the procession of the gifts and stay near the altar until the sign of peace. The children will be looking for you so it helps to try and sit in the same area every week. Sunday school is open to children ages 3- 7. This year we are asking our families to sign up for this program to help us with planning. Sign up will be Sept. 25 to Oct. 16 at the back of the church.
We are also excited to invite children ages 7-13 to take part in our new monthly children’s Masses on the last Sunday of the month at 9am beginning Oct. 30. These celebrations will offer children an opportunity to take an active role as gift bearers, petitioners and readers. Children can sign up to be a gift bearer, petitioner or reader beginning September 25th after Mass (in the vestibule). Father is already planning his first homily that will help everyone see the gospel message through the eyes of a child. The dates for all the children’s Masses will be on the St. Agnes Parish website by Sept. 25 and more information will be provided after Mass on Sept. Keep an eye on the website for updates on this and other celebrations/events. Hope to see you soon.
