The Little Church at St. Peter’s


The Little Church at St. Peter’s on Sunday mornings at 10am Mass. Following the
Pope’s visit we are trying to engage in a greater outreach to members of the Parish
who may need a little extra encouragement. The Little Church helps to engage the
children, to meet new friends, and to become familiar with the Parish Community and
its workings at Mass on a Sunday morning. It also helps the parents who may wish to
attend Little Church themselves or remain in church for the Mass. The children return
to the church in time for the Offertory Procession. While in the Parish Hall with the
Leaders the children learn prayers, sing hymns , and listen to the Readings of Sunday.
It also helps the families for Parish Preparation of the Sacraments of First Holy
Communion and Confirmation. All of this is an additional tier to help parents with
their responsibility in the Catholic upbringing of their children. See you on Sunday
Sacred Heart Church
Their is also a children’s group run each Sunday for the young church community at
Sacred Heart Church.
