To Parents of Young Children:
May we suggest . . . RELAX!
God put the wiggles in children.
Don’t feel you have to suppress it in God’s house.
All are welcome!
Sit towards the front where it is easier for your
Little ones to see and heart what is going on at the altar.
They tire of seeing the backs of others!
Quietly explain the parts of the Mass and actions
Of the priest, choir, and other ministries.
Help them find the hymns and prayers
In the hymnal or booklets.
Sing the hymns, participate in the liturgy and pray.
Children learn about worship and
Liturgical behavior by copying you.
If you have to leave Mass 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
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 His house of worship.
To the Members of our Parish:
The presence of children is a gift to the church
And a reminder that our parish is growing.
Please welcome our children and give a smile of
Encouragement to their parents.
