Children's Liturgy of the Word

Children ages 4 through 3rd grade celebrate Liturgy of the Word at each weekend Liturgy in their own worship space. The children hear the readings of the day in a language they can understand, and share a reflection on those readings with adult leaders.  They follow the flow of the mass, and will return to the Nave before the Eucharist prayers.

“Through sensitive adaptation of liturgical celebrations, children are able to worship in a way that is tailored to their own level of understanding and participation.  We encourage them to discover and develop their own faith by sharing the gospel stories, and relating them to their own lives and situations.”  (Katie Thompson, Liturgy of the Word with Children)

Liturgy of the Word is offered at the (;30 and 11:30 liturgies from September through Pentecost with the exception of sacramental weekends, Christmas, New Year's and Easter weekends.
