Little Lambs Atrium

Calling all Little Lambs Ages 18 Months – 3 Years of Age! – Parents and toddlers are invited to a special space prepared just for them!

We believe there is a deep bond between God and the youngest child, which produces in the child the desire to draw nearer to God. As parents and catechists, our job is to nurture that relationship. Little Lambs Atrium, therefore, is a prepared environment in which the youngest child’s spiritual life is fed by prayer (listening to God’s Word in scripture), work (using beautiful hands-on materials to experience God’s gifts), and celebration (praising God through song and sacred movement).

Our vision is to offer a monthly time for parent and child to gather in a beautifully prepared space and offer selected presentations from scripture and liturgy. Together, the parent, child, and catechist listen and ask, “God, who are you? How do you love us?” In this special space, both parent and child can build a stronger relationship with our Divine Creator.

Join us at our future offerings each month! – We meet monthly on Saturday mornings at 9 am at St. Edmund in the newly designed Toddler Atrium room adjacent to Murphy Hall. Enter through the ramp off of Oak Park Avenue just to the north of the Church building at 188 S. Oak Park Ave.
