Liturgy of the Word with Children

Mission Statement

“The mission of the Liturgy of Word with Children is to provide children from Kindergarten through Fourth Grade with an experience of the Liturgy of the Word that is geared to their level of understanding. Just before the readings begin at Sunday Mass, the children of appropriate age are invited to go to the Daily Mass Chapel for their own celebration of the Liturgy of the Word. What takes place mirrors what is taking place in the church with the adults and is faithful to the instructions given by the Catholic Church in the “Directory for Masses with Children” published in 1973. The adults who lead this celebration are prepared to work with children and trained to lead this celebration of God’s Word. It is hoped such celebrations will prepare children to better appreciate, understand, and participate in Sunday Mass with their parish family.”
