Religious Education Activities For Young Children

In addition to our regular classes for Pre-K through  Eighth Grades, OLH have two programs available for young children on Sunday mornings -
  • Our Nursery Program and
  • Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLW).
Nursery Program 1
Parents who are attending the 9AM or 11AM Masses can leave their Pre-School children in the care of our Nursery, which is in the Pre-School Room just inside Door #3 to the School, down the hall from the Religious Education Office. Tom Hawley and his staff of volunteers will provide Toddlers and Pre-Schoolers with loving care and supervision while their parents are in Mass.  NO REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.  Parents can utilize our Nursery Program without prior notice. For more information, please call the Religious Education Office at (847) 746-3744.
 
Children who have not yet received First Communion, are invited to come to the 9AM or the 11AM Masses, and accompany one of our CLWCatechists for Children's  Liturgy of the Word (CLW) during Mass.  The children and their Catechist process to a classroom,  and listen to one or more Bible stories, and share in activities  together, returning to Mass in time for the Eucharistic Prayer.  Children's Liturgy of the Word will continue throughout the school year on all Sundays when Religious Education Classes are in session.  No registration is necessary; children can join in at any time. For more information, please call the Religious Education Office at  (847) 746-3744.
