Our Children and Family Sunday pattern this week will be as follows

9-9:50 am A Family centered Sung Mass in the Nave. We are delighted that several children have now volunteered to train as Acolytes and Youth Lectors.

10-10:45 am Sunday School (3rd Floor)
Families come to the Sunday School and Nursery rooms via the living room (2nd floor) for signing in and/ registration. Parents are welcome to join the Adult Education Class on the 5th floor, where the Archbishop of Cyrus and the Gulf will be our guest speaker.

11 am Mass with Nursery Care
All families are welcome to come to this Sung Mass. The Children’s area in the Chantry Chapel may be used during Mass, with parents of younger children. Nursery Care will be available during this time for children up to five years of age.

Please note: While parents will still have pagers for emergency contact, we are needing to minimize movement in the building at this time. Children will therefore not be brought in and out of the Nursery during the service.

You are all welcome to join us for the 11am Mass in person, or to participate via the livestream.

Our older children may also be interested in attending or watching Solemn Evensong with Act of Remembrance at 4pm at the High Altar.

Attended by the Patriotic & Historical Societies of New York.
Sung by the Saint Thomas Choir of Men and Boys.
