Sunday School and Playgroup ~ On summer hiatus. Programs resume on Sunday, September 15, 2019.
At St. Ann’s Sunday School, K-6 children enjoy Bible stories and creative projects that are part of the journey toward faith. Mo. Kate Salisbury creates a lively curriculum that includes reading, praying, singing, and hand-on projects.
The Sunday Playgroup for newborn-Pre-K, meets at the same time as Sunday School and is led by led by parent Tasha Richards in which young children and their parents are invited to enjoy stories, songs and projects just for them. The format includes open play and a weekly reading and craft project that focuses on the Sunday School theme in an age appropriate way.
The Sunday School program includes musical activities, often for special performances at Early Church and other occasions. On October 5, 2019, the children presented their original “Song of Francis,” during the St. Francis Day celebrations, which concluded the “Instruments of Peace” series devoted to St. Francis and his concerns for peace. The singers flew the bird puppets they made during the program. The words of the song follow:
We care for everyone, and everything
We care for the earth for the earth has everything.
Where there is hatred, let me bring love.
Let me spread kindness on the wings of a dove.
If someone needs shelter, let me receive.
Make me an instrument of your peace.
