This Ministry has been suspended until Further Notice due to the Pandemic.

This ministry takes place almost every Sunday at the Crane Road Church during the 9:45 & 11:30 a.m. Masses throughout the year.  Children ages 5 through 9 can participate.

After the opening prayer, adult leaders guide the children to the St. Francis Room where they spend 20 minutes creatively helping the children understand the scripture readings for the day. The children are then led back into church at the offertory time so that they can participate in the rest of Mass with their families.

Training is provided for adult volunteers, who typically serve one Sunday per month. If you would like to help out as an adult leader, please contact Jackie at  For more information on this ministry please contact Deacon Jerry Ryndak at 630-338-8160 or at
