Children’s Liturgy of the Word:

This program for children ages 4-7 provides lessons and activities that correspond to the Sunday liturgy in an age-appropriate format. Sessions take place during the 10:30 AM Mass. Children leave the assembly and go to a room for their lesson during the Liturgy of the Word. They return to the Sanctuary at collection time. This program is offered from October-May. In order for this program to continue successfully, volunteers are needed.
