Grades K-7


We welcome and encourage active participation of children in the Church as a progression toward sainthood!


Vacation Bible School

Every summer, the parishes of Vicksburg have a combined Vacation Bible School. In addition, Blessed Is She, a lay Catholic community, has put together an at-home VBS experience. It is a flexible format that you can do with your children on a schedule that works for you. For more information, you can view the program here and visit the Blessed Is She website

Parish School of Religion

Parish School of Religion (PSR) classes takes place at St. Michael's Catholic Church in Vicksburg. Please contact the parish office at 601-636-0140 if your child is in need of religious education classes.

Children's Church 

Children's Church is an opportunity for children who have not yet made their First Communion to spend time with the Scriptures during the 10:30 Sunday Mass. Adult leaders in the parish help children to understand what God is telling His people in the weekend's readings. If you would like to volunteer as a leader, please contact Wilson Locke at

Opportunities to Serve

We warmly welcome any child who has received his or her First Communion to serve as an altar server during mass. If your child is interested, please call Lynne Abraham at the parish at 601-636-0140.

Child Protection

St. Paul, in accordance with the Catholic Diocese of Jackson, is committed to ensuring that children served by the church are not at risk of sexual abuse by the Church personnel. Diocesan policies and procedures currently in place seek to protect, enhance and, in some cases, restore the trust that our faith calls for between agents of the Church and the children and adolescents entrusted to our care.




"Children are the most beautiful gift and blessing that the Creator has given to man and woman. Children are never a mistake."
