Children & Youth Ministries

Teach your children to choose the right path, and when they are older, they will remain upon it.    (Proverbs 22:6)

Altar Servers
Boys and girls 10 years and older are welcome to become altar servers.  To know when the next training will happen, please contact Sandi Luongo.

Liturgy Of the Word For Children
This special program is for children aged 4-9 and takes place during the 10:30 am Sunday Mass.  The children leave the Church after the entrance prayers and sing songs, pray and do activities and crafts in keeping with the Gospel readings for that Sunday.  They return to their family after the homily.  Parents are always welcome to attend with their children.
     
Youth Ministry: JCRU (Jesus Christ Redeems Us)
Our Youth Ministry is dedicated to providing opportunities for young people to meet together to grow in faith and socialize with like-minded youth. We pray and play together and support parish activities with their unique and splendid gifts. Email the Youth Ministry Coordinator, Matthew Furtado, at matthewfurtado@hotmail.ca for more information.

CFC-Youth (Youth for Christ)
CFC-Youth is a branch of the Couples For Christ ministry. We are "young people being and bringing Christ wherever they are" who meet twice a month for faith, freedom, fun, and fellowship. Come join us at one of our General Assemblies or join our community through an upcoming camp (Spring/Autumn).

St. Matthew`s Young Families Group
This group gathers families together for the purpose of creating relationships rooted in our common Catholic faith. We support each other through challenges and successes, provide learning opportunities with relevant information involving families and most importantly create lasting memories and lifelong friendships as we watch our children grow in Faith together.  The group gathers regularly for various activities.
