Preschoolers: Breaking Open the Word (BOW) - This "Sunday School" has three classes designed for different age groups. One class is for 3, 4 and 5 year olds who are not in kindergarten. One class is for K, 1st and 2nd graders. The third class if designed for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. Children attend 10:30 a.m. Mass with their family and receive a blessing before the first reading. They leave the upper church and at offertory return to share in the rest of the Mass with their family.
