Those who are led by the Spirit of God are
children of God
At Saint Mary’s, we are committed to the spiritual formation of the children in our community. Our Guiding RAY program provides fun and interactive religious instruction for Pre K through 6th grade.
Please refer to the children’s calendar for the WINTER-SPRING schedule which also includes a few parish-wide special events.
We begin our regular Sundays at 9:15 am in the lower level of the parish house. This is a time for the children to come together for free play, making friends, sharing, singing, and special visitors. Guiding RAY classes begin at 10:00 am and our lessons are based on the Workshop Rotation Model.
Childcare for babies and toddlers (up to 3 years) is provided in the Nursery.
At 10:45 am the children join their parents in the church building to celebrate the Eucharist. There is a “Quiet Box” in the rear of the church with activity packets, related to the current monthly theme, for those children who need a quiet activity during the more contemplative part of the service.
Guiding RAY is a cooperative program so we hope all parents will volunteer in some way. Whether you choose to teach, substitute, help with a movie day or special event your efforts will be greatly appreciated. Please reach out to Meg Hurdman at 207-400-9011 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
