Children’s Liturgy of The Word: Age 4 – 2nd Grade
Children ages 4 through 2nd grade are welcome to participate in Children’s Liturgy of the Word every Sunday morning during the 9:00am Mass. After the Opening Prayer, children are brought to the Parish Living Room where we listen to God’s word proclaimed from the Children’s Lectionary and wonder and learn together what Jesus is trying to teach us in the readings. Children return to the assembly at the Offertory.
