Faith Formation Youth Events
St. Dominic Children’s Liturgy Cooperative
Children ages 4 through first grade can hear the Children’s Gospel, pray, and learn of God’s love for them in a special setting during the 10:30 a.m. Mass on Sundays from October through May. The children go to the Blessed Sacrament Chapel after the opening prayer at Mass and return to take part in the procession at the preparation of the gifts. Children’s Liturgy is made possible through the generosity of volunteer parents with elementary age children.
See Middle School Faith Class and Faith Labs on Faith Formation page.
During the summer for 7-10 days, students who have completed 8th grade through 12th grade sign up to serve the mission field through St. Dominic Church and Youth Works International. It is a wonderful combination of service, prayer and camaraderie. Preparation and fundraising begins in the fall prior to the summer mission trip.
- Mission trip dates: June 14-23, 2013
- Location: Blackfeet Reservation, Montana (located by Glacier National Park)

Vacation Bible Camp — VBC
During the summer, for 5 days, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., the parish grounds are transformed into a themed faith camp for children ages 4 through 11. Older children and adults from the parish attend as “camp helpers”. Children sing praise and worship songs that carry them through the year, make fun crafts, enjoy outdoor games, watch puppet shows, enjoy snacks and make life-long friends. VBC will be held August 5-9, 2013.
