Children's Liturgy of the Word logoThe Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLW) ministry enables children to participate in the formal worship experience, to nourish and guide their spiritual growth and to immerse them in the Word of God in ways that are understandable to them. All children, ages 4 years old to 1st Grade, are welcome to participate. The children are dismissed from Mass during the Liturgy of the Word. They are escorted to a classroom setting in our Church, assisted by volunteers. They will hear the Word from the Children’s Lectionary. The lead catechist guides the children to an understanding of the Gospel that they can embrace. The children will return to their parents at the offertory. We offer this opportunity during the Sunday 9:00 AM Mass. Once children have received their First Communion, they should remain in the sanctuary.
Our Mission is to proclaim the Word of God to children, ages 4-7 years old, on a level that they can understand and find enjoyable, through shared prayer, singing, and listening. Younger children are welcome to come with a parent.
Parents are always welcome/encouraged to join their children if they have any questions about our ministry.
