Welcome to Children's Religious Education!

Hello Families!!

We have details!!

The St Joseph's Children's Mass is at 7pm on Dec 24th.

We will be having a very simple pageant open for all parish families with kids 3 yrs old and up. We will have groups of Angels, Shepherds, farm Animals, 3 wise men and Mary and Joseph. No live Jesus this year but we have a suitable fill in.....

The Children will process in to their song ( only the chorus or as long as they need to file in really) ,,,, Three wise men -- WE three kings Farm animals -- Away in the manager etc. We will stand as group in the front and sing one song together. The Children will have reserved seating at the front close to the choir. Teachers will be seated with them.

Dec 22 at 9:45 am we will have a dress rehearsal starting in the church hall and then we will process up and practice walking in to the church and setting up where we will stand. We will also figure out how many pews we will need so if you could have an idea of where your child (ren) would like to sit that would be great. 

Dec 24 

Our Catechism team will arrive at the church hall by 5:45pm,  we will assemble the children and 

get them all dressed in their costumes, we will have some colouring sheets available to keep them occupied.  At 6:45pm we will move upstairs and assemble in the community room and have them ready to go for Mass.
