CHILDREN’S LITURGY OF THE WORD
Immaculate Conception: during 9:00 a.m. Sunday Mass
St. Patrick: during 11:00 a.m. Sunday Mass
Children’s Liturgy of the Word is a wonderful way for young children to receive Scripture on a level which they can relate. The Seeds program is designed to introduce preschoolers through 2nd graders Jesus’ love for them.
We celebrate the Liturgy through a child’s point of view by allowing them to celebrate God’s word at their own pace, giving them the opportunity to ask questions, interact and offer their thoughts, and reflections, following the pattern of normal congregational liturgy. Learning through prayers, songs, readings, activities, and discussions children hear the Gospel each week in an age-appropriate format. It is designed to create a sense of belonging. You would be amazed at how much the children understand and remember from the Scripture passages.
How can my child participate in Children’s Liturgy of Word? Simply attend Mass.
- The children are dismissed by Father and will walk to the back of the church before the Liturgy of the Word. A leader will accompany downstairs to the Children’s Liturgy room. Parents are always welcome to join us with their child.
- They return to the main assembly in time for the Preparation of the Gifts to sit with their families for the rest of the Mass.
We are always looking for volunteers to help with Children’s Liturgy of the Word. Volunteers aid the teachers and guide the children as they proceed out and back into Mass. This is an ideal way to earn service hours for Confirmation candidates. If you are interested in helping please feel free to join us downstairs or contact Kristin Dittman at 715-246-4652 ext 260 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
