The purpose of the Children’s Liturgy of the Word is to enrich our children’s liturgical experience of God’s presence in the ritual proclamation of the Word.

  •     It emphasizes liturgical in contrast to catechetical or “church school” experience
  •     The children are actually attending Mass: they are experiencing the Liturgy of the Word in terms and experiences that are understandable to them.
  •     At the Liturgy of the Eucharist they return to their families.
  •     They hear the same readings proclaimed at Mass as their families, but written in a style for them to better understand.

Liturgy of the Word is offered on Sunday morning’s at 9:30 a.m.

Those who would like to volunteer to help at the Children’s Liturgy of the Word should contact the Office of Religious Education at 401.949.0330
