A Place for Children
At St. Anne Church, children are a big part of our community. With close to half of our 1850 families being families with children and our largest age group demographic being parishioners between the ages of 11 to 15 years of age, the education and formation of our children is of great importance to our parish and Church.
For our youngest children, we provide a variety of opportunities to assist parents in bringing their children to Church and to help the children participate at a level appropriate for their age. The Nursery is available at every Mass, staffed by Nursery Director Elizabeth Johnson and parish volunteers. The nursery is intended for young children not ready to participate in Mass. The Training Room is intended for parents with infants or children making the transition from the Nursery to the body of the Church. Children’s Liturgy of the Word, available during the Saturday Vigil Mass at 5:30 p.m. and the 10:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday, is an opportunity for young children intended for children ages 4 through first grade. Mother's Morning Out (MMO) is available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. to Noon for children ages 2-3 years. For information on MMO, contact director Elizabeth Johnson at 706-561-5039.
For our school-aged children, St. Anne-Pacelli Catholic School is the only PK4 through 12th grade Catholic school serving southwest Georgia. We also have an excellent Sunday School program for those students PK4 through 8th grade attending non-Catholic schools.
We encourage all families with children to be involved in the many ministries at St. Anne. At the age of 9 years old, youth can begin to get involved as an individual in ministries open to youth.
At St. Anne Parish, there is always a place for YOU!
