Kids Summer Events
teens overnight retreat here.
We have facilitators for Children’s Liturgy at the 9AM and 11AM Masses from October to June for ages 3 to 8.
The children are called up to the front after the Opening Prayer and go upstairs with our facilitators from the First Reading to the Offertory hymn and are back down before the Eucharistic Prayers and Consecration.
Children will hear the Word of God and a reflection in their language, take part in prayer, and do colouring, skits, hear stories, or do crafts that are related to the Sunday Readings.
At Easter, we will be putting together a skit that your child may help with that will require them to practice outside of the Mass time. More information on this in February.
If you feel called to serve in this Ministry or if you have any questions, please contact Amber Tweedy at Amber.Tweedy@caedm.ca or at the Office at

Children’s Programming – FINISHED FOR SUMMER
Children’s Programming will resume with new registration in October 2017 with a different theme. Registration forms will be available here beginning in August. We thank you for your support and the great turn out this year!
Is your child between grades 1 and 6 and want to meet more kids from the community?
Beginning in January and continuing until June, we will be offering a new program for kids that runs the fourth Sunday of the month from 130PM to 4PM in the Activity Centre, upstairs, and/or outside.
This year’s theme is Encountering the Saints where children will learn about two saints each month – one man and one woman – and how they were called to God. The children will do crafts, games, activities, and get to know one another and how regular people can be saints.
The cost is a one-time fee of $25 per child before their first session and that fee covers all 6 sessions. This fee goes towards materials and a snack for each child, so refunds for a missed session will not be available.
To register, please see the December 3/4 bulletin, or print off a copy of the registration form below. Your child may register after the sessions have begun, but the cost will remain the same. Registration and cost only applies to that term (so next year in September, you will have to re-register if your child would like to join again).
Each school year we will be changing the theme so that the kids can come multiple years and enjoy new learnings and make new friends. Next year (2017/2018), we will have a longer program from October to May.
If you have any questions, please contact Amber Tweedy at Amber.Tweedy@caedm.ca or at the Office at 780-456-5399 ext. 105
