Liturgy of the Word With Children

 

Liturgy of the Word with Children is a worship experience geared especially for children. It mirrors the worship experience of the larger community with a style that is engaging and interactive. Jesus himself recognized that children have a pure spirituality, and he made them the primary model for all believers. This program offers an experience for children to listen to the scriptures in words they understand and to share their own understanding of God’s word.

 

Liturgy of the Word with Children is held in the Rainbow Room in the church during the 10:30 mass on Sunday mornings. After the Introductory Rites of the mass, Father invites children ages 4, 5, 6, and those children who are in Grade 1 to join their leader and proceed to the Rainbow Room. The children return after the Eucharistic Prayer of the Faithful to celebrate the Communion Rite of the Mass with their family and the entire congregation.
