‘Liturgy of the Word for Children’ is a concerned and sensitive way to enable children to participate in the formal worship experience of the community. The liturgies are intended to nourish and guide their spiritual growth, and to immerse them in the Word in ways that are understandable to them.
We celebrate the Liturgy through a “kid’s eye” point of view. We try to do this by allowing them to celebrate God’s word at their own pace, giving them the opportunity to ask questions, to interact and to offer their thoughts and reflections, following the pattern of normal congregational liturgy.
Children’s Liturgy is provided each weekend during the school year, at the 5.30pm Saturday Mass for children of school age, and at 9.30am Sunday Mass for pre-school and toddlers.
Beginning with the proclamation of the scripture readings with everyone, the children are then invited to join their liturgy leader in the Church Hall.
Children re-join their parents in church at the Offertory of the Mass.
