During the 9:00 a.m. Sunday Mass, Children who are in the Kindergarten through 4th grade are able to attend the Children's Liturgy of the Word. This gives the children an opportunity to hear the Gospel from the Children's Lectionary, discuss what the Gospel means to them and engage in an activity relating to the Gospel. The children leave the church after the opening prayer and return during the offertory. Please do not bring children in late as it is very disruptive. There aren't any forms to fill out or fees to pay. Anyone wanting to participate would just go to the banners at the appropriate time. Everyone in K thru 4th grade is WELCOME! If you are an adult or teen who would like to be a presider at the Children's Liturgy of the Word, you are invited to attend a planning meeting. The planning meetings are once a month & are held in the Fireside Lounge at 7:30 p.m. As a presider you work with a partner one Sunday a month to bring the Gospel message to the children. The lesson plan is discussed and written out at the planning meeting with everyone present to give their insights. If you have any questions or would like more information, please call the Rectory Office at 510-797-1660.
