Where do my children go?

I’m not Catholic ... so, how do I know when to sit, stand and kneel?

Our Word and Eucharist book tells you when you can sit, stand and kneel, or you can do as everyone else does.

If you are not Catholic, we invite you to cross your arms over your chest and receive a blessing at communion time. 

Am I expected to put money into the offering?

The Ushers pass the offering basket but no one is required to put in money.

I have a hearing problem. Is there any special assistance?

Yes, we do have audio assistance devices available, near the Sacred Heart Grotto. You may speak to the Ushers for assistance.
