Children’s Liturgy of the Word

We have Children’s Liturgy of the Word during the 9am Mass for students in 1st through 6th grade.  This is a prayerful, age-appropriate way for young people to “break open the Word” at their level.  Children are gathered by the Presider after the Opening Prayer and sent to the Thomas room with a trained Liturgical Minister. They hear the readings proclaimed, they discuss them and they pray. Then, they rejoin the main assembly for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.  We plan to offer Children’s Liturgy of the Word every Sunday at the 9am Mass.  We urge families with elementary-age children to take advantage of this ministry if your weekend schedule allows.
