Children’s Liturgy of the Word

The Mass and its readings can be difficult for our younger children to understand and comprehend. At our 9:00 am Mass, we offer Children’s Liturgy of the Word. Just before the First Reading, children in grades K4-5th 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 a reflection. Students then participate in an activity to engage their other senses in the Gospel message and return to Mass during the Offertory.

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.
