Liturgy of the Word for Children

During our Sunday liturgies we invite children ages 6 years and up to gather together for an age-appropriate celebration of the Liturgy of the Word.  Children are dismissed from the 8:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. masses, and proceed to the Resource Center. They return to mass following the homily.  No pre-registration required. 

 Opportunities for Service

  • Adult Leaders work in teams of two and are assigned to this ministry every six to eight weeks. They conduct the liturgical proclamation of the Word for the children, using very detailed and creative resources to assist in interpreting the Word to this age group.
  • Aides are adults or teens who assist the adult leaders in giving general direction to the children. The presence of Aides can offer the ingredient of individual care when the needs of a child may require personal attention.
