Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)

At our Sunday 9:00 am and 11:00 am Masses, our young children, ages 4-8, are dismissed after the introductory rites for a separate Liturgy of the Word.  This is a liturgical experience which opens the young people to hear and respond to God’s Word on their level.  The volunteers are prayer leaders who accompany the children on their faith journey and listen to them as they share their experiences of God’s presence in their lives.  The prayer leaders have a resource that helps them prepare the liturgical season background, the lectionary readings, the Scripture background, and a guide for the session. The children return to their families for the Liturgy of the Eucharist
