Each year we host a variety of special and seasonal events for children and youth, their families, and the whole congregation of St. Patrick’s. These inter-generational activities are an innovative approach to faith formation for all members of our community. A number of these include a Parish sponsored meal, activity and/or craft, and worship service. Additionally, they are a wonderful opportunity to bring friends and extended family to church and share the joy of St. Patrick’s with others.
Epiphany Service and Pageant are held either on or as close to January 6 as possible. We tell a story that was authentically ours involving multiple generations and share the story of how the light of Christ came into the world and spread throughout time. Everyone is welcome! From our littlest members as cherubs to our eldest as Saints of the Church.
Periodically throughout the year, the parish sponsors outings providing an occasion for people to spend time together as the community of St. Patrick’s in a broader context.
Each year we provide opportunities for our parish to gather inter-generationally to engage in education, fellowship, fun, and service. Time is set aside to learn more about the Godly example of the life of the Saints and how we can continue the good work they began today as well as to learn about the special Feasts and Holy Days of the church year.
Events include things like Burying the Alleluia, Easter Egg Hunts, Blessing of the Backpacks, the Feast of St. Francis and the Blessing of the Animals, St. Nicholas Day, and many many more.
Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School is traditionally held each summer during the month of July. This yearly opportunity brings together the children, youth, and adults of our Parish as we learn and grow through play, crafts, music, storytelling, and more!
