Youth group meets regularly to share a meal, take a field trip or work on an outreach project, such as making blankets for homeless students in our local community. Our youth are active participants in worship at St. Hilda St. Patrick, taking a turn to read the scriptures and sometimes giving a weekly talk.

Younger children (and any accompanying noise!) are welcome and valued participants in worship at St. Hilda St. Patrick. They are welcome to be physically present, but also to step out as needed (from time to time the vicar’s husband has been known to step out briefly with their baby to change a diaper!) A table is available in the Sanctuary with quiet activities–coloring, playdough, crafts–for those who prefer to stay with their parents, but need a little something to do. A rocker and soft space are available for those needing extra attention.
