CHILDREN’S LITURGY OF THE WORD
Liturgy of the Word for Children is offered at all weekend Masses for children ages 4 to 9. Here they will experience age-appropriate activities such as singing, listening to the weekly readings, and doing a follow-up activity. Children are dismissed from Sunday Liturgy before the readings and go to a separate room. Children return to their families before the Eucharist begins.
For those too young to attend Children's Liturgy, we offer busy bags and the First Step children's space (new!).
Each weekend, at all three liturgies, we will provide a safe and comfortable space for our youngest children and their parents. A carpeted area with playthings for the children will be set up in Fellowship Hall near a TV monitor. Parents or caregivers may take their child/children to this area when they feel the child/children are becoming restless. After a time when the "wiggles" have calmed, parents and children are encouraged to return to the assembly.
This ministry is led by adult volunteers. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact the parish office.
