Children’s Liturgy of the Word Leaders

Ministry Contact: Mary McArdle (

Jesus said: “Let the Children come to Me…
for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these”
-Matthew 19:14


Children’s Liturgy of the Word takes place during 9:30 am Mass on Sundays from late September to mid June. All children in kindergarten through 2nd grade are welcome to attend; no registration is necessary. The priest or cantor invites the children to come forward prior to the Liturgy of the Word. The children, accompanied by a catechist and assistants, proceed to the chapel, where they listen to and discuss the Gospel at their level of understanding. They may act out the story or color a related activity before returning to their families in time for the Offertory. This Ministry of faith sharing is always in need of catechists and assistants who wish to share their time and talent with some of our youngest parishioners. Contact our Parish Office for more information.
