The Children’s Liturgy of the Word is for Children in grades 1-5, and occurs most Sundays during the 9:00 am and 11:00 am Masses.
The Children’s Liturgy of the Word is the way the Church celebrates the Holy Scriptures with children at Sunday Mass. Officially approved translations of the Readings are used that are easier for the children in this age group to understand. This is not Sunday school and there are no sign-ups; this is a part of the Mass that is especially for the children.
When children come to one of these Sunday Masses with their families, they are called forward after the Opening Prayer for a blessing and are sent to the Chapel. Once there, Adults Leaders break open the Scriptures and help the children to praise God and deepen their faith. At the conclusion, they return to their families in the Assembly to celebrate the rest of the Mass.
If you are a parent, please encourage your children to participate. If you are an adult who loves the Scriptures and who loves working with children, please consider helping in this ministry.
