Child Ministry

Even our very young children experience God and seek a relationship with him. To support this, we provide a place in which children in K4-5th grades can experience, express and develop their faith – in community with their peers and families, as well as adult and youth leaders. We recognize that families are the primary catechists for children of this age and aim to support them in this endeavor by providing both family-oriented and child-centered opportunities.

For further information on these programs or to find out how you can become involved, please contact

In our Child Ministry classes, children in grades K4-5th meet in small groups with an adult catechist to learn the basics of the Catholic faith through age-appropriate activities. Students in the second grade will prepare for First Reconciliation and First Communion through these classes and a corresponding retreat.

*Financial difficulties are no reason to keep your children from participating in Christian Formation. Contact John Knetzger/ Associate Director of Child & Youth Ministry (jknetzger@stjosephgrafton.org/262-375-6500, ext 104) or the Christian Formation office (cfoffice@stjosephgrafton.org/262-375-6500, ext 120) to make arrangements. As we say, “ALL ARE WELCOME”.

Vacation Bible School

Each summer we offer an exciting and entertaining Vacation Bible School for children in K4 – 4th grades.  Our campers explore God’s love through crafts, singing and games.  Our volunteer youth counselors (5th – 12th graders) enthusiastically lead and join in the fun activities with the campers.  Adult leaders supervise and organize the different activities.

 

Our 2023 VBS has been scheduled for June 12-16.
