Parents, do you hesitate to bring your family to Mass because you're tired of "the battle?" Arming yourselves with bottles, cheerios and coloring books in the hope that your children will at least stay occupied long enough for you to maybe catch part of the homily? And that's only if you manage to win the battle at home, convincing your children that church is somewhere they want to go. Maybe we can help.
At St. Gabriel's, we don't want church to be a battle. We want it to be an experience in which all encounter Christ, at their own level, in a way in which they want to come back and do it again. From 6-months-old to Grade 4, we offer children's ministries during all of our Masses, so that parents have a respite and can focus on worship, and children can praise and learn about Jesus in a way that gets them excited about church.
