Liturgy of the Word with Children

Although we teach our children in the Catholic Faith, often the regular Mass and its readings can be difficult for our younger children to understand and comprehend. During each 9:00 am Mass, we offer Children’s Liturgy of the Word. Just before the First Reading, children in grades K5-5th are invited down to Steiger Hall to hear and experience the Readings and Gospel of the day, in an age appropriate, engaging and more accessible format. Students are led by qualified and dedicated leaders who share the readings and how the message can relate to the students’ daily life. Students then participate in an activity to engage their other senses in the Gospel message.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLW) is offered every Sunday at the 9:00 am Mass. CLW is a free service and requires no sign up or registration.
