All children are unique and special, and everyone is important to God because God created each one in His own image and likeness (Genesis 1:27). God loves and cares for ALL of them, and He invites us, adults, to bring children to Him. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.” (Luke 18:16-17).
Recognizing the beauty and presence of God in each person, our Family of Faith Ministry program welcomes children of ALL abilities. We are blessed to have dedicated Catechists with Special Education and inclusion experience. We work together and recognize each child’s unique gifts, talents and abilities. Our goal is to encourage and support the children and their families on their faith journey and prepare them for their sacraments. Classes are held at St. Joseph on Sundays, twice a month, September to May. For more information or to register, please contact our Parish office at 510-656-2364.
