Kids At Mass @ St Therese’s

St Therese\'s Parish Essendon Kids at Mass

For over 10 years, St Therese’s has run a special program to engage school age children in the understanding and learning of the gospel. Kids At Mass (KAM) is usually held on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month during the 10.30am Mass. All school aged children are welcome to participate and parents are welcome to attend too.

KAM is designed to give young children a way to understand and celebrate the messages of that week’s gospel and readings. Each week a ‘child-friendly’ version of the gospel is read and discussed and then the children participate in a structured activity that reflects the gospel message of the week. Activities include drawing, craft, singing and playing games. KAM is a great way to participate in the church community and meet new friends and families.

Special Events

The KAM team host two special events throughout the year:

  • Palm Sunday Procession – An entrance procession for Palm Sunday where children are encouraged to attend in colourful clothes and lead the procession into the church.

  • Welcome to St Therese’s’ School Year and Staff Commissioning Mass: Morning Tea – In partnership with the Tiny T’s Playgroup, the KAM team host a morning tea for our parishioners at the start of the school year.
