COVID-19 UPDATE: There will be no
Children's Liturgy of the Word until
further notice. Sorry for the
All children attending mass, from
Kindergarten to grade 3 are invited to
join the children and their leaders at the
5 pm Sat. mass as well as the
9 am and 11 am Sunday Mass, in the
St. Francis room. The Children’s Liturgy
is meant to mimic the actually liturgy
taking place in the church with age
appropriate readings and gospels for the
specific Sundays of the year. The children
will learn to make up their own prayers as
well as participate in art and puzzles
pertaining to the readings.
This liturgy also puts on an Advent Party
at the beginning of Advent and Christmas
pageant for the Children’s mass on
Christmas Eve, with music, readings and
the re-enactment of the First Christmas.
This ministry has been running since 1975
by volunteers from the parish. This
program runs from September to May. Adult
and youth volunteers are always welcome.
All volunteers will be given a few weeks
training. One or two informal gatherings
will be held throughout the year to assess
the progress of the program.
