    Vacation Bible School:
    A one week, half day program in the summer for children entering grade 1 through grade 6. Each year a new theme of our faith is explored through Bible stories, crafts, skits and song. Leadership opportunities will be available to high school students who wish to grow in their leadership and evangelization skills.

    Chill Zone
    The Chill Zone is a safe drop in zone for youth in grades 5 through high school. It usually runs on the 2nd Friday of each month from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm in the Parish Centre. There is a games room with cards and video games, a seasonal craft, bingo, a conversation room with air hockey and foosball, as well as a stocked tuck shop. High school students have their own space to hang out. Youth are required to sign in and parents are most welcome to help supervise the Chill Zone.

    Christian Thread - High School Ministry
    Open to all high school students! Our gatherings allow teenagers to feel supported,  have fun and grow in faith. Being with other faith-filled teenagers help equip our high school students with ways to defend their beliefs and help others to understand their faith. Food is always a highlight! Contact Colleen Hanley for an updated schedule.

    Theology on Tap
    Once or twice a year we gather with our college and university students to reconnect and share stories of joys and disappointments and help them grow in faith in a campus culture.

    Family Catechism
    Our Family Catechism program is an excellent opportunity to learn more about our faith and to meet other families in our community!  Children are divided into age based classrooms while parents are able to attend an adult formation  class. A supervised nursery is provded for infants and toddlers. Classes are held Sunday afternoons from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm in the Parish Centre. To register or to see the schedule go to www.famfi.ca.

    Birthday Card Program
    Each child registered in our parish receives a birthday card from the Pastoral Team and the Parish to celebrate their life! It is important that families notify the Parish if they move or have additional children -- it is the only way for us to know!
