Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLW) is celebrated during the 10:00am Mass most Sundays between October and April. Prior to the 1st reading, Father will ask the children (4 years old - 1st graders) to come up front for a blessing. After the blessing they will be led downstairs to Matthews Hall for a children’s version of the readings and a reflection. This may include a short teaching and activity. Children will join the congregation upstairs again following the Prayers of the Faithful.
CLW is a parent co-op program, meaning it is completely parents-led and facilitated. There is also no charge/fee to register for the program. When registering, parents will select one or more volunteer roles to take on throughout the Faith Formation year. Parents will be scheduled on a rotating basis to serve in the role they selected. The scheduling frequency will vary depending on the number of participants and volunteers.
