The Atrium of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, known simply as ‘The Atrium’, is a welcoming and safe place where children aged 3-9 can begin developing their relationship with God.
We assist with nurturing this relationship through:
- Serving the child in a way that calls on their own response.
- Providing materials that spark curiosity and lead them into a conversation with God in a way they can relate to.
- Storytelling and parables.
- Simple explanations of history and the meanings of symbols.
Location: Behind Holy Rosary Church
Session times: Once a week for two hours
Children’s Liturgy of the Word
Children’s Liturgy of the Word is offered at every Mass throughout the year, except from Christmas to the beginning of the new school year and on certain major feasts or celebrations. Liturgy of the Word for Children allows young children, from prep to sacramental age, to listen to and respond to the Sunday readings at their level.
