On the fourth Sunday of each month, the youth participate in their own instructional Eucharist. Each fifth Sunday is a Youth Sabbath when the children participate in the regular liturgy in the Church. They also participate in Masses marking special occasions such as The May Crowning, Pentecost, All Saints’ Sunday, and more. Instructional time includes age appropriate lessons, activities and music.
As part of their Benedictine teaching apostolate, Mother Rachael, O.S.B., Sister Ann, O.S.B., and Father Sava, O.S.B. provide the main instructional support, with members of the parish assisting. All teachers and aides receive youth safety care training.
Other Christian education and formation opportunities are also available at Glory to God. There is an Acolyte (Altar Server) Training Program, individually arranged small group instruction on the reception of the sacraments, Vacation Bible School, weekly adult bible study, and an adult RCIA program.
Our curriculum is comprehensive and includes exploration of the Old & New Testaments, Catholic Identity & Practice, and preparation for the reception of the Sacraments.
The children participate in the procession each Sunday at the beginning of Mass before they are excused to catechism. They return to the Church in time for Holy Communion.
