Children's Ministry

Children's Liturgy

The Liturgy of the Word for Children helps children to experience the Church as Community, and conversely helps the Community to embrace and acknowledge the children in the Parish Family.

Currently we do not offer Liturgy of the Word for Children at St. Theresa's Parish.

 Do you wish to help? - Perhaps God is calling you! Weekly Leader Guides and training are provided for adult leaders of the Liturgy of the Word for Children. For more information about this Ministry or if you would like to help facilitate the Children's Liturgy, please contact Cheri Kasianchuk.

The Bible is filled with instructions to parents on the care and proper rearing of children, with special emphasis upon the importance of teaching God's Word. Parents, this is a responsibility the church shares with you, and speaks to the importance of the Liturgy of the Word for Children at Mass. The main focus of the Liturgy of the Word for Children is to encourage children to form a loving and generous response to the Word of God, and to help children learn about their faith in a positive and enjoyable manner.

What happens during the Liturgy of the Word for Children?


Catechism is taught at St. Theresa's every two weeks on Sunday mornings from 9:45 to noon and includes 11:00 a.m. Mass, for children from Kindergarten to Grade 8 (including Confirmation classes for grade 8 students). Catechism classes begin in the Fall continue every two weeks until the last Sunday before the Victoria long weekend. If you have any questions or would like to join this ministry as a catechism instructor or helper, contact our Catechism Coordinator.

St. Theresa's Scholarship

This scholarship fund was set up by St. Theresa's Knights of Columbus to assist the youth of our parish to attend a secondary/ post-secondary school in Manitoba. Preference will be given if applying for a Catholic school. In the event of multiple winners the scholarship will be divided equally. Please contact Dennis Weselowski for an application or for further information.
