Little Lambs runs between October and May.

Little Lambs is an extension of our Family Formation program and is an opportunity for your pre-schooler (ages 3 & 4) to attend “Sunday School” the first Sunday of the month during the 10:00am Mass. After this once a month class, your child will be given materials to work on each week with you at home so that together you may discover the riches of our faith. As your child approaches school age, you will be invited, as a family, to continue the journey and participate within the offerings of our Religious Education department. We are here to give you any support you need as the PRIMARY CATECHIST of your child! If you are interested in your child participating in the Little Lambs program, you MUST register. (NO DROP-INS ARE ALLOWED.)  

Participants in ANY religious education event must also print out the Diocesan Permission Slip for the current school year and have it completed, in hard copy form, and on file in the Religious Education office BEFORE participation events.

For those families who are able there is an $11 fee for Little Lambs materials.
