Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked them, but Jesus said, "Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:13-14
We seek to reach the minds and hearts of our parish children, bringning them the Word of God on their own level. We want to show them that God's love is endless, that Christ's message of salvation will carry them through the rest of their lives, and that they are to share God's love with their families and with everyone they meet.
Children's Liturgy is offered during the 9:30 AM Mass only at this time.
We are seeking volunteers to be catechists for the 11:30 AM Mass as well. Please consider this wonderful ministry as a way to share your love of Christ with our parish children.
Please contact Kathy Bendyk if you are interested in participating.
What is Children’s Liturgy?
Children are dismissed after the opening prayer for their own Liturgy of the Word & reflection, presented at their age level and are brought back to church during the start of the Offertory.
When the priest dismisses the children, either bring or send your children back with the rest of the group.
What are the age limits?
Children’s Liturgy is open to all children, Kindergarten age through 3rd grade. No registration is required.
Is there a cost?
There is no cost for sending your children to Children’s Liturgy. Just watching their smiling faces as they learn about God’s Love and about Christ is payment enough!
When is Children’s Liturgy?
Children’s Liturgy occurs during the 9:30 AM and 11:30 AM Sunday Masses from September through May.
Where is Children’s Liturgy?
Children’s Liturgy is held in classroom #12 of the Sts. Joachim & Ann School.
Can I help?
Absolutely! We are always looking for volunteers to help serve as Liturgists, Musicians, Time Keepers, or as an adult presence to help keep the children focused on the Word.
Parents are encouraged to volunteer at least one Sunday during the year.
