Liturgy of the Word for Children is offered during Saturday 5pm and Sunday 10:30am Mass throughout the school year. This is for children between the ages of 3 and 6. A catechist gathers the children after the opening prayer during Mass and walks down to the Church Library to lead the children in the Liturgy of the Word in an age appropriate manner. Readings are the same as during Mass, perhaps in simpler terms. The children then have time to participate, with the catechist, in a question and answer format homily. Appropriate activities and/or crafts may follow afterwards. The children are then led back to the church and rejoin their families in time for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
New volunteers as catechists are always welcome. Contact Sarah Rocchi at 604.708.1791
