The parishioners of St Michael’s, Ashburton, welcome you to Mini Micks. Mini Micks is committed to providing parents of young children with the opportunity to meet each other and gather in a range of settings. It is facilitated by a core group of parents of young children all of whom are members of the Parish community.

We hold a small number of Church and social events for parents and their children throughout the year. These events are designed to provide parents with a way of introducing the Church into the lives of their children and offers companionship and support within the St Michael’s Parish Community. Attendance at Children’s Liturgy on Sunday’s at 9:00am is a good way for 4yr olds to join with other young school aged children to explore the Gospel reading of the day in an age appropriate environment.

Mini Micks events are listed below:

  • Sunday March 5: Mini Micks BBQ after 10.30 Mass
  • Wednesday 26 April & Monday 1 May:  Morning Tea following St Michael’s School Principal’s Art Music, and Story Time for 2018 prep students.  Story time at 9.30am, Morning tea 10.30 to 11.00am.
  • Sunday 27 August:  Family Mass at 9.00am  followed by morning tea
  • Saturday November 25: Christmas prayers & songs at 4.00pm followed by sausage sizzle

Parents are also invited to attend other St Michael’s School functions throughout the year, such as the Women’s Breakfast, School trivia and other fundraiser nights. All functions are held in the school, which also helps familiarise our children with the school grounds, aiding their transition into Prep at St Michael’s School.
