WELCOME TO CHILDREN’S LITURGY OF THE WORD

 

Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) is offered during the 10AM Sunday Mass most Sundays with the exception of liturgical holy days. Children’s Liturgy  is a special form of catechesis for our young children grades K-3rd. Children are invited into the chapel during the Liturgy of the Word to hear God’s Word proclaimed out of the Children’s Catholic Bible. They hear the same Sunday readings as in Mass, but in language that they can easily understand. The children are lead in a discussion and an activity that gives them the opportunity to reflect on God’s Word and explore how it connects to their lives. They then return to their family for the Liturgy of the Eucharist. CLOW introduces children to both the structure of liturgical worship and participation in worship so they grow in their understanding and love of God.
NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED- All children ages Kindergarten through third grade are welcome to participate.

VOLUNTEER for this engaging Minstry! Do you love sharing God’s Word? Do you love working with children? Do you want to help and still be able to participate in the Liturgy of the Eucharist with your family? If you answered YES to any of these questions then join CLOW Ministry. We need adults to help facilitate the Liturgy of the Word (We have quarterly leader guides available) and we also need adults and teens (this counts for service hours) to help guide the children while in the chapel. If you are interested in learning more please call or email.
