Liturgy of the Word for Children

 

 

Our children celebrated Christ the King by creating a crown that that was brought forward with the gifts and placed on the altar.

 

Liturgy of the Word for Children is celebrated every Sunday during the 9:30 am Mass.  Right before the first reading starts, the children are called to gather in the center aisle.  The priest or deacon gives their blessing, and the children and adult volunteers head down to the hall to talk about the Gospel and relate it to the children’s everyday lives and help them grow in their faith.


If you have children, please feel free to bring them along to experience this fun time. If they are a little shy, a parent or older brother or sister
are welcome to join them.
