Children’s Liturgy of the Word

Children’s Liturgy of the Word is designed to help our children understand the readings of the day, especially the Gospel message. Families sit together during Mass until a leader calls the children up to the altar after the Opening Prayer. The children are given a blessing by the celebrant and the congregation, and then they are brought to the Gym and parish center to hear and discuss the Word of God. Children return to the church after the homily.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word is designed for children ages 3 and up. Parents are welcome to accompany their younger children who might be hesitant to go by themselves.

Meeting Times:
During the 9:00 AM Mass each Sunday except when it is a 9-Alive! (Family Mass) Sunday during the Religious Education School year
