Children’s Liturgy of the Word is an age-appropriate Liturgy of the Word offered for ages 3 through 6 at the 12:00 PM Mass. No pre-registration is necessary. All children are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Just before the Liturgy of the Word begins for the assembly, these children are invited to come forward to the altar to be blessed and then the catechists lead them from the church the daily mass chapel. During this special time, the volunteer teacher leads the children through prayers, songs and readings that are simplified for children.
The children learn about the same Scripture readings as the rest of the assembly. They are taught a simplified main message of the readings and are encouraged to share that message with their parents after Mass.
They meet every Sunday from September through May with the exception of the Sunday following Thanksgiving, the two Sundays before and after Christmas and Easter Sunday.
