Praying With Children as We Journey Together With Children as We Journey To

Two Mondays, June 6 and June 13, 7- 8:30 pm in the Francis Room

CBC Radio’s program “Tapestry” recently explored the child’s capacity for prayer and spirituality. There was a resounding affirmation of children’s innate sense of the holy and importance of attentiveness by parents and the community toward this gift. To help support our parish in its ministry to children, Kathleen Ennis from the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, will facilitate 2 evening reflections on the topic of prayer and spirituality of children in the context of the proclamation of the Word. If you are a parent of young children, a teacher, a catechists and/or parishioner that would like to know more about God’s grace active in the lives of children and ways to strengthen our support for our youngest parishioners, then come join us!
