In 1996 Fr. Ed gave us his blessing to establish a Children's Mass here at St. Bonaventure Catholic Church.

Father continues to give us his support as he guides the children during practices and workshops and is there for all our Masses.

These celebrations give the children the opportunity to become active members of our vibrant Church as they learn more about the Holy Mass, begin to serve the Lord and become an example for all our children in the Parish.

It takes time and dedication in the part of the children, their parents who bring them to Church and the people who generously give their time and effort to help the children prepare for each celebration.

The Children’s Masses are celebrated on the first and third Sundays of each month at 9:00 AM during the school year and also the 4:00 PM Mass on Christmas Eve.
