Children's Liturgy of the Word

Children’s Liturgy of the Word

Children’s Liturgy of the Word takes place during the 9am Mass for children ages 3 years old through 2ndgrade (those who have not yet made 1stCommunion).

Children are dismissed prior to the readings to engage in the readings in age appropriate activities. The children return before the Eucharistic Prayers. Parents and older siblings are welcome to attend until the younger child feels comfortable going by themselves.

No registration is required. The program is open to parishioners and visitors and is held in the classroom in Church during 9am Mass.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word runs from the 2ndSunday of September to the 1stSunday of May.

Please note: All adult volunteers and employees who work with children have completed diocesan training as well as Illinois and DCFS background checks.

It is our hope to restart our Children's Liturgy of the Word at the beginning of September 2022 barring Covid restrictions. We are looking for adults and teenagers that might be interested in leading. Time commitment is typically once a month. Please contact the parish office if you are interested.
