Children grades 1-5 who attend the 9:30 a.m. Sunday Mass are invited to the altar at the beginning of Mass. They are blessed by Father and sent with a Catechist (Faith Sharer) to the Music Room. They hear the Sunday readings & homily at children’s level and pray their intentions together. They re-join us in church before Communion. This is a win, win, win … the kids understand the readings and “get” the WORD … they come back to Mass hungry for Eucharist…and the car ride home is filled with chatter about the Gospel.

SPECIAL NOTE:  Parents please consider taking a turn at leading Children’s Liturgy of the Word.  We provide background material and suggestions on “how to”  help the children understand and incorporate Scripture into their lives.  Not only do we welcome LEADERS we also appreciate extra parents to help manage our big group.
