Helping Children to Experience God’s Love

At St. Philip the Deacon, we have a particular commitment to our youngest members, remembering that Jesus explicitly told his followers to “let the little children come to me.”

Our Children’s Ministry has programming for families and children from birth through elementary school, including instruction for the sacraments of baptism and first communion.

Children seem to be acutely aware of God’s presence. Those of us who are a bit older could learn a lot from them.

From resources to help you prepare for baptism to special programming to help your child transition from elementary to middle school, and everything in between, there are so many opportunities to connect, learn and grow.  

If you are expecting a child, or if you have children who are toddlers through elementary age, we hope you’ll learn more about our offerings for you and your family.
