Children’s Liturgy of the Word
Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLW) is an age-appropriate Liturgy of the Word offered for school-age children attending kindergarten through 4th grade. No pre-registration is necessary. All children are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Just before the Liturgy of the Word begins for the assembly, our children are invited to go with the weekly leaders from the church to Kohler 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. Children return to their parents in the pews following the homily.
Available during the 9:00 & 11:00 am Masses for grades K-5.
We Love our Little Children
God put the wiggle in children; don’t feel you have to suppress it in God’s house.
- Sit toward the front where it is easier for your little ones to see and hear what’s going on at the altar.
- Quietly explain the parts of the liturgy and actions of the priests, deacons, altar servers, choir, etc.
- Sing the hymns, pray, and voice the responses.
Children learn liturgical behavior by copying you.
The presence of children is a gift to the Church and they remind us that our church is growing.
During Mass: Check out our “Church Time Totes” and our Children’s Bulletins at the entrances of church and in the Joyful Noise room. We also have the Joyful Noise room if you feel your children will be disruptive.
