During the School Year, the children attend the 8 am weekday Masses, according to the following schedule:
Mondays – Grades 1 and 5
Wednesdays – Grades 2 and 6
Thursdays – Grades 3 and 7
Fridays – Grades 4 and 8
For these weekday Masses, the students will be seated in the section of pews immediately to the left and to the right of the main sections of pews off of the center aisle. These Masses will follow the usual, simple form of celebration as weekday Masses have in the past. We also have the once-a-month all-school Masses, which usually fall on Tuesdays at 1:45 pm.
We believe it is a tremendous blessing to have our parish school children attending Mass at least once during the week. Through this, may all our parishioners learn again the importance of and need for regular attendance at Mass.
For the Tuesdays Masses (once-a-month all-school Masses), each grade level is responsible for the preparation of these liturgies. The students serve as readers, singers, and altar servers. Each liturgy has a theme, and the students are active participants in its prayerful presentation. We also have a faculty choir that sings during the liturgies.
Please see the weekly schedule of the School Liturgies on the right sidebar of this page.
Also, Saint Celestine Parish offers Liturgy of the Word for Children that takes place at the 9 am Mass on the second and fourth Sundays of the month during the year.
