CHILDREN, YOUTH & FAMILIES

 
Toddler with Toys

INFANTS & TODDLERS

For the youngest members of our Church family, infants and toddlers to age 3, St. Margaret's offers nursery services every Sunday and during the majority of other special services and events.  Loving childcare is provided by paid, trained and dedicated staff, many of who have worked in our nursery for several years.  The children are care for in a fully equipped preschool area and are brought to the church at communion time so they are able to join their family for a blessing during communion.

SUNDAY SCHOOL-CATACHESIS OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD

St. Margaret's provides a wonderful program of religious education for children from age 3 through 5th grade.  We teach the "Catechesis of the Good Shepherd," a world-renowned program based on the premise that God has established a pre-existing relationship with each child.  Instructions help each child explore and deepen this intimate relationship with God in a prepared environment.  Our 4th and 5th graders are introduced to  "Living the Good News," a program that explores our Sunday readings and allows them to participate more fully in the larger church community.
