Canterbury Kids Count!
Canterbury's Church School meets at 10:00 a.m. each Sunday morning and adjourns in time
for the children to join their parents in receiving Holy Communion. Church School teachers are
recruited from the congregation and work in teams of two to ensure that the
needs of the children are met. Children are currently grouped
into four classes: preschool and elementary (age 3 through 5th grade), and
middle/high school (6th grade and above). Confirmation classes are
presented as needed or as requested by students and parents.
The classes combine from time to time to make Christmas cards or bake cookies
for Prison Ministry; to decorate our Ofrenda for Dia de los Muertos; to make
crafts and serve food for our annual Pancake Breakfast fundraiser; and for other
activities throughout the year.
Other popular parish Sunday school events
include an annual Easter Egg Hunt and a multi-generational Christmas
St. Thomas is one of the Albuquerque-area Episcopal
churches (along with St. John's Cathedral, St. Mark's-on-the-Mesa, St. Michael
& All Angels and St. Chad's) that plans and participates in NW Deanery
children's ministry activities such as Vacation Bible School and a "Palm
Saturday" activity and worship event.
