Liturgy of the Word for Children

During Sunday 10 a.m. Masses in July and August, St. Mary’s offers the Liturgy of the Word for children in grades kindergarten through 5.

The presider for the Liturgy of the Word for Children is invited to come forward before the first reading to be commissioned. They then process with the Word to the rear of the Church. Children are invited to join in procession to the Pavilion outside Church, which is their place of celebrating the Liturgy of the Word. They hear a children’s version of the Gospel and are asked what they think Jesus is asking of them that week. They then return to Church for the remainder of the Mass.
