Our Children’s Ministry is for children in grades K-5. We offer a multi-faceted approach to help parents form children in the Catholic faith.
Our faith formation sessions take place twice a month from October to April. The twice a month format provides families with more time for other activities together after Mass on the “off” Sundays. Sessions are held on Sunday mornings from 10:00-11:45 a.m. at our parish school, St. Patrick, located at 125 Austin Street in Portsmouth. The 1 ¾ hour sessions allow us to incorporate experiential faith activities such as visits to the church, learning about saints through skits and videos, scripture stories, and more, into the catechetical sessions.
Four Family Events a year provide an enriching, faith-filled experience for the entire family.
Twice a year, families serve the parish community together by helping to rake leaves and clean the churches. In addition, we focus our outreach efforts to those in need through organizations such as Samaritan’s Purse, thereby raising children’s awareness of the needs of others.

If you are new to the parish, or newly returned, we would love to talk with you about the faith life of your family and how we can best serve you.
