Children’s Liturgy of the Word

Children’s Liturgy of the Word is celebrated seasonally during the academic year (approximately mid-August through mid-June) at the 10:30 a.m. Sunday Mass.

All children are invited before the first reading to come forward for a blessing.  The priest then dismisses them with their catechists for Children’s Liturgy of the Word.  The children return to their parents during the Preparation of the Gifts.  All children are welcome to participate.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word is designed so that children can better understand the Gospel reading of the day.  The children read the Gospel story together, talk about it, and then have an activity that helps them to process the main points of the story.

Want to help children grow in their faith?

Adults and parents are invited to be a catechist for this important ministry.  Training is provided for those who are new to the ministry.  Please contact Kathy Dawson in the parish office to join us in helping our children learn our faith! (574) 233-2179 or by E-mail: kdawson@hcpsb.org
