This ministry takes place at the Crane Road Church during the 10:30 am liturgy, from now until April 2, 2017.  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

After the Downtown Church is renovated, we will return to presenting at Crane Road Church: Each Sunday during the 9:45 am and 11:30 am Masses.
