To the parents of young children…

  • God put the wiggle in children – don’t feel you have to suppress those wiggles in God’s house.
  • Quietly explain the parts of the Mass and actions of the priest, musicians, ushers, etc.
  • Sing the hymns, pray and voice the responses.  Children learn behavior from mimicking you.
  • Consider sitting toward the front where it is easier for your little ones to engage.
  • If you have to leave the Sanctuary with your child, feel free to do so, but please come back.  As Jesus said, “Let the children come to me.”
