Children’s Liturgy of the Word
Our parish offers school aged children (up to grade 2) an opportunity to hear and reflect on God’s Word in a way that they can understand. This program is offered at the 10:30 Mass, thanks to a dedicated group of parishioners who lead this liturgical prayer. The children begin Mass with their parents and then leave the assembly with their leader for the Liturgy of the Word designed for their comprehension. They return to the full assembly in time for the Preparation of the Gifts.
This is NOT Sunday School. It is NOT babysitting. It is NOT a religion class. It IS liturgical prayer. It is a Liturgy of the Word happening in tandem with the one in the church.
