Children's Liturgy of the Word is offered for children in grades 1 - 3 during the 10:30 am Sunday Mass. The purpose of this ministry is to make the Gospel more accessible to young children so that they can hear the Good News at their level of understanding. Adult leaders provide background knowledge and help children understand the language and context of the gospel reading each Sunday. They help children apply the message of the Gospel to the circumstances of their own lives. Children sing favorite hymns and offer their petitons and prayers to God. Afterward, they rejoin their parents in the church to continue the celebration of the Mass.
Children's Liturgy of the Word follows the Child/Youth Religious Education calendar. Therefore this ministry is available from August through May each year on Sundays when classes are in session.
