Childrens Liturgy of the Word is not held during the months of June, July, and August.
Children's Liturgy of the Word takes place during the 9:00am and 11:00am Masses on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month during the school year. All children in grades K-4 present at the 9:00am and 11:00am Masses are invited to participate in CLOW. After being led from Mass to Bishop Sheltz Hall, the children hear the readings from the Children's Lectionary read by trained youth lectors. An adult facilitator presents a reflection on the gospel and then leads the children in the Profession of Faith and Prayers of the Faithful. The children are led back to the church during the offertory so they may participate in the Liturgy of the Eucharist with their families.
Parents are always welcome to come back with their children during Mass and see what it is all about. We are seeking new helpers! A typical volunteer serves one hour a month. Volunteer duties range from being a watchful adult presence in the room, keeping the kids safe and on task, to reading a prayer or the gospel reading, or sharing a reflection with the children. Any contribution of time is welcome and much needed in order to properly accommodate all of the children who join us.
