All children in pre-K through grade 5 and their families are invited to get involved in Children's and Family Formation at Holy Comforter. We provide a variety of opportunities and resources for children and families to learn, grow, and find support in their journeys of faith.
Our Program for 2021-2022
This year we are offering a Children & Family Formation Program that children, parents, and other family members can experience together at the church. Families will explore scripture stories with members of their household through art, science, cooking, dramatic play, and other multisensory activities set up at different stations. This rotation format will enable children and families to encounter stories about God in creative ways together while promoting the health and safety of the community during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

All children and families are also invited to participate in our monthly intergenerational formation programs. These opportunities enable parishioners of all ages to engage Christian faith, liturgy, and practices throughout the year. Intergenerational programs will center on the theme of Living Love in 2021-2022, and they will be offered in a variety of formats, including in-person events, no-contact take-home resources, and online.
