What can I expect my first visit?

 First of all you'll be welcomed! At Santo Niño’s we believe there are no visitors, but rather all who join us for worship are full members of our spiritual family from the moment you enter our sacred space.  

 Whoever you are, wherever you find yourself on your journey of faith, you are welcome here.

 

A Sacred Space

As you enter, you will notice an atmosphere of worship and reverence.  Our architecture and stained glass windows contribute to a sense of a post modern tradition, understated yet at the same time warm and welcoming to all as your eyes are carried to the altar and to the cross, taking our thoughts to Christ and to God whose house the parish is.  On the altar there are candles to remind us that Christ is the "Light of the world'' (John 8:12) other church appointments as God's house recalling the resurrection of Jesus.  

 The Mass

As you enter, an usher will greet you and hand you a service bulletin and missalette from which you will be able to fully follow and participate in the service, regardless of your familiarity with Catholic worship traditions.  The ushers may also escort you to a seat and answer any questions you might have about the service. 

 

Our Message

While our worship and music reflects the rhythms of the ancient church, the message from the pulpit reveals a living, breathing, dynamic body.  The parish stands as a place that celebrates great diversity and embraces the critical issues of our time; issues that affect all of us and either threaten or affirm who we are as God's people.

 Our Music

The parish features volunteers from our congregation, giving of themselves and their talents to enhance our worship with a mixture of contemporary and traditional hymns and songs, responsorial psalms and service music. In addition, the parish is sometimes host to concerts and performances throughout the year due to our centralized location and intimate ambiance. 

 Welcome Table

If you are new to Santo Niño's or an out-of-town visitor, please stop by our Welcome Table in the vestibule, as you entered facing Cleveland Avenue. You will find the table staffed by friendly greeters who can answer your questions, show you around and introduce you our clergy and staff.
