Children's Liturgy of the Word

Children’s Liturgy of the Word is an opportunity for our K-3rd graders to enjoy full, conscious, active participation in the liturgy.

At the 9:00 a.m. Mass the second and fourth Sunday of each month (every Sunday during Advent and Lent) children are called forward, blessed, and dismissed from Mass by the priest following the Collect, or Opening Prayer. The children move to the Music Room in the church for the Liturgy of the Word. They will have a gathering song or prayer, hear the Sunday readings proclaimed, and participate in guided group sharing breaking open the Word, the Creed, and Prayer of the Faithful.  The children will return to the church during the offertory for the remainder of the Mass.
