Welcome! Children's ministry seeks to provide kids in pre-school through grade 5 with the knowledge, experiences, and skills necessary to become faithful and fruitful disciples of Jesus by building relationships with them, being examples for them, and teaching them God's Word. We encourage parents, as the primary role models of a faith-filled life, to partner with us in the faith formation of their children through involvement in our ministry.
We prepare students for their first Holy Communion and first reconciliation through our formation classes.
We value and care for each of the children entrusted to us. All catechists are safeguarding trained through the Archdiocese of Milwaukee program and submit to a thorough background check. St. Dominic Catholic Parish and the Archdiocese of Milwaukee is committed to creating an environment of healthy and responsible relationships where all of God's family will be able to work, live and play. For more information or to register for a training please visit: Safeguarding: Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
Parish contact: Michael Ricci, 262.781.3480.
Children's formation classes are offered September through May for children in K3 through grade 5. Registration begins in May. Sadlier textbooks are used in the program. The Sadlier Website is a great resource for families and catechists.
Karios for Kids is our preschool program on Sunday mornings in the Marcy Center. Kairos for Kids is similar to Children's Liturgy of the Word, but provides an hour-long session for children to meet, do activities, and learn more about God in reference to the Sunday's readings. Best of all, there is no fee for this program!
Sunday K5 classes are held from 9:00-10:15 AM. Classes for K5-grade 5 are held on Mondays from 4:45-6:00 PM or Tuesdays from 6:15-7:30 PM. Classes provide formal religious education intended to support the faith development of the child in the family. A wide variety of age-appropriate learning strategies are used. All students participate in service opportunities and prayer experiences.
