Children's Holy Hour - Coming up on December 6th!

We have Children's Holy Hour during the last hour of adoration (5:00 - 6:00pm) on the first Wednesday of each month.  Please bring your children, no matter how young.  We recommend staying a minute for every age of the child.  During Children's Holy Hour we expect for there to be more coming and going, so you are not disrupting anyone by staying for a brief time.  Adoration is made more child-friendly with music, cushions to kneel in front of the altar, and adoration materials.  Spending time with Jesus in Eucharistic Adoration is natural for the children and keeps Christ in their hearts.


Movie Night for the whole family!  

Please email jminor@standrewbythebay.org if you need childcare!  Pizza will be offered at 6:30pm and movie begins at 7:00pm.
