Noah’s Ark

Noah’s Ark is a Childcare and Church Readiness Program for parish toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergarten-aged children, where faith and fun are celebrated weekly during the school year.

The goals of Noah’s Ark are to build community and to introduce church readiness skills in a fun, interactive, and age-appropriate matter. The children are led in various activities throughout the session, and follow a routine which includes free play, prayer, discussions, games, ritual, scripture, music, and craft.

This ministry is staffed by well-trained volunteers who include high school students, confirmation candidates, parents of children attending, and adult parishioners.

Noah’s Ark is available weekly during the 10:30am Mass from October through May, and meets in the Early Childhood Center.  Two “Decks” are available, so age-appropriate lessons are given to meet the developmental needs of the children.   There is no fee for this program, and parishioners may have their children attend as often as is convenient for them.
