Jesus and Me (Preschool JAM)

All our little three, four, and five-year-old parishioners are invited to attend our J.A.M. Program. Each lesson is grounded in Scripture and offers opportunities for the children to enjoy Bible stories, crafts, songs, and games, all teaching them about different stories from the Bible. The children meet in the St. Joseph Room (in the Multi-Purpose Building behind the Family Center) during 10:00 AM Mass. Parents are encouraged to lend a hand with classes and special events.

This year's remaining J.A.M. dates are:

March 10th
March 17th
March 24th

Kids in Ministry 

Kids in Ministry hosts parties and activities for preschool and elementary age children and brings opportunities for evangelization and fellowship to the Central community. Each year we hold a Halloween Party, Christmas Party, and Easter Egg Hunt and invite the whole community out for fun and games. We are always seeking creative, artistic, innovative, and original adult volunteers who would like to share their gifts with our parish through this ministry. Volunteers can help with coordinating, decorating, and executing these yearly events!

Vacation Bible School  

St. Alphonsus will host ROAR VBS 2019 from June 10th to June 14th, 2019. ROAR is a FREE week-long program where kids discover that God is good even when life gets wild! Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, and experience one-of-a-kind Wild Bible Adventures. ROAR is for kids from 4 to 13 and run from 9 am to 12 pm each day.

4 year olds will be brought to Little Paws Preschool where they get to experience age appropriate fun!

5-11 year olds will rotate through our fun VBS stations including: Crafts, Snacks, Bible Lesson, Recreation, and Music with their own crew mixed with kids around their age!

Got a 5th or 6th grader? We've got an awesome experience for them too this summer! While the younger kids partake in a typical VBS day, the 5th and 6th graders will spend Monday-Thursday participating in various service projects in the greater Baton Rouge area! We'll post a schedule here with more details on the different organizations we'll be teaming up with! On Friday, this group will get to enjoy a party with a water slide to thank them for their hard work throughout the week!

Volunteer and participant registration are now open! For more information, please call 225-261-4644.
