CHILDREN’S LITURGY OF THE WORD
We offer Children’s Liturgy of the Word during the 10 a.m. Mass on Sundays. Children from kindergarten through grade 5 are welcome to attend. After the opening prayer at Mass, the children will be invited to follow the adult leader to the chapel where they will hear the Sunday’s readings and discuss them on a child’s level of understanding. After the creed, and prayers of the faithful, the children rejoin their families in the main body of the church.
