We are excited to offer a new opportunity for families who experience special needs challenges when celebrating the Mass together as a family. Beginning June 5th, and continuing each Sunday at the 12:45 pm Mass, the front section of the Parent Room will be setup with sensory friendly materials and visual supports to provide a reserved area conducive to the needs of your family.
This is an option for you to use whenever you choose. You do not have to sign up for it. You are always welcome to celebrate the Mass in the Nave as well or you could choose to do both.
If you know families who are no longer attending Mass because they felt too overwhelmed or their child could not make it through Mass without melting down, please share this exciting news with them and welcome them back to Saint Michael's Church!
This Sensory Friendly room can be requested by your family for a special event being held at our church that you want to attend such as a wedding, funeral, or other church event. Please contact us if you have questions or to make this type of request.
We are in need of volunteers to setup and monitor the room, and put things away after Mass. Procedures will be emailed to you. If this is something you would like to try, please sign up for an upcoming Sunday using the link below. We really appreciate our volunteers!!
