Resources for Families

Faith @ Home is a website that provides free resources to help families engage in faith conversations outside of church.  Faith @ Home Daily assembles five short, intergenerational resources for each day, inviting you to WATCH, LISTEN, READ, DO, and PRAY. The offerings are designed by formation professionals to be engaging and user-friendly. Visit the Faith @ Home website https://www.dofaithathome.org to browse the offerings, or sign up for free delivery to your inbox.

 

Tucked In: Bedtime Stories and Prayers with Episcopalians and others is a Facebook Group that offers read-alouds of picture books with faith themes.

Worship at Home

Hopefully you have been able to join your Holy Cross family in our new Sunday morning online worship.  It is a lovely offering, but geared for an adult congregation.  If you would also like to have a family worship experience that is geared to include children, Megan Hoskins recommends Worship at Home, a downloadable document by Mary Hawes. Worship at Home will guide you in setting up a simple family worship space and includes a do-it-yourself prayer service with links to songs and music.  This is super user-friendly -- no seminary experience required!

Children's Chapel

Children are invited to attend Children's Chapel during the 10:30 a.m. service. Children's Chapel is an age-appropriate exploration of the Gospel. Children rejoin their parents for communion.

Sunday School

Holy Cross provides religious education to all children Pre-K to high schoolers on Sunday mornings. Sunday School is held from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m.

Sunday School is held most Sundays from September through May. Parents are asked to register their children in September at the beginning of the school year, but children are welcome in Sunday School at any time. Please see the Sunday School page for more information about the Sunday School program.

Children’s Choir

The children's choir sings about once a month in church and for special events such as the Blessing of the Animals. All children are welcome, but it is especially geared to kids from Kindergarten to 5th grade.

Please contact Nick Lodico to find out more.

Child Care

We have a professionally-staffed nursery on Sunday mornings from 9 a.m. to noon. Age-appropriate toys and activities are available, and the nursery is equipped with a silent pager system so that parents can feel comfortable knowing that they will be contacted if the need should arise.
