F.R.O.G. -Fully Rely On God -     (Sunday Children's Liturgy of the Word)

St. Cyril of Jerusalem Parish

FROG (Fully Rely on God) is a children's dismissal catechism program that offers a children's Liturgy of the Word during the Sunday 10AM Mass from September through June. All children ages pre-k through 2nd grade are welcome to participate, whether they are a student of Saint Cyril School or not!  

Shortly after the opening prayer, Father will call the children to stand before the altar where he will say a brief prayer and dismiss the children to the parish hall. There, we continue the celebration of Mass on a level that our younger children can understand. We read the Gospel, which corresponds to that which is read in Mass each Sunday. Then, we discuss the Gospel where the children participate in a short Q and A. Depending on the time frame and Gospel of the week, we will either teach the children a song, play a game, or work on a craft project that coincides with the Gospel. The great part of the FROG Ministry is that it teaches our children about the love Jesus has for us while helping the children’s love and faith to grow at the same time!

All of our Ministries that work with children are in full compliance with the “Safeguard the Children Program.” All teachers, volunteers, chaperones and helpers who interact with children are "VIRTUS®" trained and fingerprinted. 

All children participating in our FROG Dismissal Program must be registered. Registering your child can be done in just a few minutes by completing the Dismissal Catechism Program Registration Form. Ready to get started?  To download the registration form click here.
