Sunday Children’s Liturgy of the Word (Grades 1-5)

On the second and fourth Sundays at the 10 o’clock Mass during the school year, all children have the opportunity to learn about the Sunday Mass readings at an age-appropriate level with a trained volunteer catechist. They are dismissed from Mass after the Opening Prayer to engage in the Children’s Liturgy of the Word in Gara Hall. The children return to join their families at the beginning of the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Parents are welcome to accompany their children any time.
