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! Find Worship at Home at http://www.
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.
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.
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.
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.
