Families with Young Children

Families with Young Children

Join other families with young children for faith and fellowship. This is a great way to meet other parents to form friendships, prayer groups, or play groups.

Our Goals

  • To help parents grow in our Catholic Faith by providing opportunities for faith formation and worship in which children are welcome to attend along with their parents
  • To aid parents in teaching our children the Catholic Faith, including prayer and Catholic tradition, via events, crafts, and resources that are rooted in Catholic teaching, the liturgical seasons, and the lives of the saints
  • For parents to grow in fellowship and friendship with each other and, thus, strengthen our St. Maria Goretti Community.

Upcoming Events

Family Adoration Hour

Third Tuesday of the month, 3 - 4 p.m.
Little ones are most welcome during the 3 - 4 p.m. Holy Hour on the third Tuesday of the month. Toys will be provided as parents adore our Lord.
