Children's Liturgy of the Word takes place during the 10:45 AM Masses every Sunday during the school year. After being led from Mass in the Main Church to the Chapel, the children hear the readings from the Children's Lectionary read by trained leaders. An adult facilitator presents a reflection on the Gospel and then leads the children in the Profession of Faith and Prayers of the Faithful. The children are led back to the church during the offertory so they may participate in the Liturgy of the Eucharist with their families.
Parents are always welcome to come back with their children during Mass and see what it is all about. We are always seeking new helpers! A typical volunteer serves one hour a month. Volunteer duties range from being a watchful adult presence in the room, keeping the kids safe and on task, to reading a prayer or the Gospel reading, or sharing a reflection with the children. Any contribution of time is welcome and much needed in order to properly accommodate all of the children who join us.
