What is Children’s Liturgy of the Word?
Children’s Liturgy of the Word is a program that invites school-aged children (kindergarten through grade 5) to leave the larger parish assembly during Mass to celebrate a concurrent Liturgy of the Word. The children return to the main parish assembly for the Liturgy of the Eucharist. The children experience the same readings and rituals as the larger parish assembly, but use a special children’s lectionary with a homily experience geared for their age group.
At what Masses are Children’s Liturgy of the Word offered?
Our Children’s Liturgy of the Word is held on Sundays from September through June at the 9:45 AM Mass at St. Ambrose Church and at the 9:00 AM Mass at St. John the Evangelist Church. Occasionally, there will be no Children’s Liturgy of the Word most often when something special (e.g., the Passion, First Communion) is taking place during the Mass that we do not want children to miss.
WE ALWAYS NEED VOLUNTEERS TO ASSIST AT OUR CHILDREN’S LITURGIES OF THE WORD.
