In person Sunday School returns to Saint Martin’s!
Sunday School occurs during our Sunday 10:30am mass. Some adjustments have been made to make sure we follow the Covid guidelines from the Diocese.
Saint Martin’s uses Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) for our children’s education and has 3 levels. CGS is an approach to religious education that is rooted in the Bible, the liturgy of the Church and the education principles of Maria Montessori. It really focuses on the joy in the relationship with God and the young child.
Children ages 3 through kindergarten and toilet trained will meet in the large conference room upstairs for our Level 1 atrium
Children in 1st through 3rd grades, our “Level 2” atrium, will meet in the large conference room upstairs
Children in 4th through 6th grades, our “Level 3” atrium, will meet in the small conference room upstairs
Per Diocesan guidelines, masks will be required and we will maintain a 3ft distance. Additionally, unlike prior years, the children will not be joining the mass for communion. Instead, children will have the opportunity to receive communion during Sunday School from a Eucharistic Minister. Parents will be asked to remain seated after the service and the children will be brought to their pew directly after service.
Please note that this year Saint Martin’s will also be having a “Come As You Are” Eucharist on Saturdays at 5:30 pm. We understand how busy families’ lives can be. For the times when you cannot make the 10:30am Sunday mass, we invite you to worship in community with your family at the Saturday service.
As we all know, the situation with the pandemic is always changing and Diocesan guidance could be updated. We look forward to one day returning to our traditional format, but are very excited to once again be able to see all of our St. Martin’s youth in person.
