MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)

SMA MOPSCause caring for little ones is exhausting.

Mom, you aren't alone. A MOPS group is a gathering of moms coming together for community, conversation, and friendship. The goal of MOPS is to meet each mom where she is and walk beside her as she embarks upon the crazy and beautiful journey we call motherhood. That's why St. Michael is excited to announce that we have a MOPS group– so that YOU, mama, get precisely what you need and are surrounded by other moms just like you.


MOPS meet throughout the school year, every other Friday. Our meetings include breakfast, small group discussions, speakers, fun activities, and much more. The best part is.... we offer childcare so that you can get your well-deserved uninterrupted ME time!


No matter how many kids you have, if you work, stay-at-home, are married or single, joining a MOPS group empowers you to link arms with other moms and journey together through motherhood. Our group is open to ALL moms from everywhere, all parishioners and non-parishioners. So share and invite all the mamas that you know!


Our first meeting is a come-and-see meeting! Try out and learn more about our tribe. We just ask that you RSVP!
