Kingdom Kids

Children’s Liturgy of the Word (Kingdom Kids Worship) for 10:00 AM Mass and 2:00 PM Spanish Mass. All children between the ages of 5 and 8 are welcome to attend and will be called to the Altar before the readings during Mass.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

CGS is an approach that nurtures children in their faith through presentations that focus on scripture and the liturgy. It was developed based on the educational principals of Maria Montessori, who studied early childhood development in depth and greatly valued the dignity and immense potential of the child for learning.

Nursery

The nursery is available most Sundays at the 10:00 a.m. Mass and the 2:00 p.m. Spanish Mass. Children (ages 12 months to 4 years old) are taught lessons, sing songs and work on crafts while parents worship in the Church. Contact Cristy Barton cbarton@olmc.org for more information.  Our Nursery is a co-op nursery, for more information please contact Heather Stuffel  hstuffel@olmc.org (for the 10 AM Mass) and/or Aurora Vazquez avazquez@olmc.org for the 2 PM Mass.
