Liturgy of the Word for Children

Just before the Liturgy of the Word begins for the assembly, young children are invited to go with the weekly leaders from the Church to Morgan Hall.  During this special time, the volunteer teacher leads the children through prayers, songs and readings that are simplified for children.  The children learn about the same Scripture readings as the rest of the assembly.  They are taught a simplified main message of the readings and are encouraged to share that message with their parents after Mass.  Volunteers are welcome to help these eager youngsters learn the Word of the Lord.

From October to April, children 4 to 7 are dismissed during the 9 am and 11 am Masses (except the Family Mass at 9 am on the first Sunday of the month) and brought to the lower level of the church.  Teams of adult and teen volunteers lead an age-appropriate experience of the Scriptures.
