- LITURGY OF THE WORD FOR CHILDREN:
Adults and Children hear the Word of God differently. In order to help children receive the Word of God in way better suited to them, we offer Liturgy of the Word for Children.
Each Sunday at the 10:00 AM Mass, just before the Readings and Homily, grades Pre-K through fourth grade, are invited to a separate place with trained Catechists to hear the Word of God proclaimed to them in a way that they are better able to receive it. After this age appropriate proclamation of the Word of God, the children return to their families for the continuation of Mass.
There is no registration or fee for Liturgy of the Word for Children. Just come!
