Youth

Kids for Christ!

"God has no difficulty being understood by children and children have no trouble in understanding God."

Pope Francis

Here at Saint Anne, there are many ways for our youth to explore, enhance, and simply enjoy their relationship with God. Our first and foremost ministry is our Faith Formation program, which offers a variety of platforms for participation. Instruction is also available in a more informal format. We have a unique children's Liturgy program that runs on Sundays during the 9:30 a.m. Family Mass: Children's Liturgy of the Word for our young brothers and sisters through grade 4.  It is a great opportunity to introduce a little bit of faith to your children--while YOU can experience the Mass in peace! There are also ways for our kids to actively participate in the Mass itself. We invite all parish children to get involved in Altar Serving or Family Choir. Altar serving is open to boys and girls in grades 2-8, and the Family Choir is open to all parish kids-and their family members!  

 

We are thrilled to have a new Youth Ministry program called BOLD: Becoming Our Lord's Disciples. BOLD and BOLD Middle offer our kids faith, friends, and fun through a number of social activities and trips.

 

Our parish seeks to instill our children with the values of Christ in all aspects of their lives, so that the spiritual fullness provided by our religious ministries imbues our kids' social and communal lives as well. We have a variety of Community programs that enable our children to play, grow, serve, develop friendships, and experience God's love. Basketball, Bowling, and Cub Scouts. 

Faith Formation

Enrollment in our Faith Formation Program is offered to all registered parishioners who participate in the sacramental life of the church and, most especially, Sunday Eucharist. The Program is open to all Parish children in Kindergarten through Grade 8 who are not in Catholic School.

 

Registration is open for the new Faith Formation Program year. To register, please contact the Faith Formation Staff for further information and registration materials. We can be reached at 201-791-1616, Colleen's extension is 218 and Sandra's extension is 224 or email at stannefaith@gmail.com

Liturgy

Children's Liturgy of the Word

Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) for children in grades K-4 provides an introduction to Gospel themes in a safe, fun environment. 

 

It meets every Sunday at the 9:30 a.m. Family Mass. Children will be called forward before the Liturgy of the Word and process down to the Church Hall for their own celebration of the Liturgy of the Word.  They return to their families after the General Intercessions. 

 

Please call the Rectory for additional information at 201-791-1616. We are always looking for adult volunteers to help out! Please let us know if you would be interested in this important ministry!

Children at the Sunday Masses offer faithful and caring service, assisting the priest and helping all to worship God with reverence and joy. Children in grades 3-high school are very welcome to get involved and schedules are arranged with your individual needs in mind! For more information, speak with Fr. Sam or Deacon Junie after any Mass or call 201-791-1616.
