Children’s Liturgy of the Word

The Children’s Liturgy of the Word is back as of this Sunday.

It is open to school going children up to First Communion. We particularly encourage those preparing for First Communion to come along.
A child attends the Mass with their parent or guardian. Just before the Liturgy of the Word, children are invited to leave the church and go with their leader to the hall. All taking part will return to the Mass to celebrate the Our Father together and then join their family.

The leader will have prepared material focusing on the Gospel of that Sunday. The material will help the child to engage with the Scripture, the same Scripture that their parents are engaging with here in the Church. We will include an activity to enhance the understanding for the child.

Each Sunday there is an opportunity for children between 5 to 10 year old to spend time together with a leader to listen and do an activity on the Gospel of that Sunday.
