What is Children's Liturgy of the Word
Children who are in kindergarten and older will be invited forward to join other participants in the Children's Liturgy of the Word program after the Opening Prayer at the 9:30 Mass most Sundays. This is not a Religious Education class or a craft session but a liturgy especially tailored for children.
Children follow the same Mass procedure as adults but on a level appropriate to their understanding. We will be using the Children's Lectionary and the children will hear a homily relating to the Gospel reading for that Sunday.
Adult assistants are needed to help with "crowd control" during dismissal. Please join the group as we gather at the front of the church. The children will return to church at the offering, parents should watch for the return of the children. Assistants will help the children find their parents.
Dismissal is held every Sunday from September to May with the exception of holiday weekends. Please watch the bulletin for any changes in the dismissal schedule. You can find the Children's Liturgy Dismissal schedule in the Children's Faith Formation calendar by clicking here. There is not cost for this program and no need to sign up in advance!
