Children’s Faith Formation

St Anne Church faith formation nourishes the mind, body and spirit of our children so they may live out the mission given to them in their baptism.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)

All children are welcome to gather with adult leaders to celebrate the Liturgy of the Word for children through prayer, the Sunday gospel and reflections. Children are dismissed at the Sunday 10:00am mass. Those grades 2+ return for the liturgy of the Eucharist.
