Mission:  To provide childcare for parents of children older than one year of age, but younger than 4.  This is an opportunity for children to socialize in a safe environment while their parents attend Mass.  Our children have sponsored 10 under privileged kids in our Charleston schools. They will prepare a brown paper bag stuffed with snacks and easy meals for them to take home with them on Fridays.  We believe we are never too young to participate in our journey of With All Your Heart.

Role in Heart to Pray:  Our children may be too young to pray in a formal setting but will listen to Glory stories music and also pray for the children they have sponsored through their “Angels Feeding Angels” program.

Role in Heart to Serve:  Once a month our children will serve their sponsored children by preparing a bag of food items for those children to take home on Friday afternoons so that they may have some source of nutrition over the weekend.

Role in Heart to Share:  Our children will go to the grocery store with their parents and choose snacks and individual meals (soup, ramen noodles, chef Boyardee) which they will share with those sponsored children.

Role in Heart to Witness:  Although our children may not meet their “angels” they will witness to them as those children will know that someone cares enough about them to share of their time and treasure so that they do not go home hungry on the weekends.
