Parent/Child Classes

Making Music Praying Twice

Music is a fun way to connect with your child.  Join us for this fun, low-pressure, hands-on parent/child music course for our youngest parishioners (0-5 years of age). Children and parents use instruments, toys, and scarves to dance, chant, sing, play games, and pray together. The curriculum is carefully chosen to enhance music aptitude and attitude in growing brains, while remaining sensitive to maturing souls.

Limited to 12 children per class. (Minimum 5 students)
