Children’s Liturgy of the Word
during the 10:30am Mass
This is the last week of CLOW for the year.
Children’s Liturgy of the Word is for children
ENTERING Kindergarten-Grade 2 THIS SEPTEMBER, 2018.
Children will be dismissed after the Opening Prayer to follow the leaders to the LAMP room. There, they will continue the Liturgy of the Word by listening to the readings and talking about them on their level. Children will be returning to their seats during the offertory.
Parents, just a few notes…
- Make sure your child knows where you are sitting so it is easy for them to return to you at offertory.
- Make sure your child has used the restroom before Mass begins.
- The only thing they may bring with them is their offertory to place in a basket that will be in the room.
- Remind them that even though they are leaving at this time, they are still in Mass.
If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please contact email@example.com.
