Children at Church

Come join us for “Little Church”

Children, ages 3 through kindergarten, are invited to join us for “Little Church” during the 9am Sunday Mass at St. Mel Parish beginning Sunday, September 11th. Children participate in a Sunday preschool-type environment learning about God in an age appropriate way through a weekly bible lesson, music, arts and crafts, and snack while the rest of the family attends Mass in the main church. Children typically attend “Little Church” on a weekly basis with some Sundays being designated as “take your preschooler to Mass” Sunday so that our little ones can begin to learn appropriate Church etiquette within their own family and begin to feel an important part of the parish community.

“Little Church” is taught by trained parent volunteers who are dedicated to sharing their faith with the younger members of our faith family. Classes are offered based on the availability of volunteer teachers and aides.

If you are interested in your child participating in “Little Church”, please contact Monica Matthews. Registration is available for all age groups, but classes do tend to fill quickly. There is an annual registration fee of $90 which covers all materials for each child. 

For further information, please contact Monica Matthews via email or (818) 340-6020, ext. 1022
