The children of the parish are invited by Father Mckay to celebrate the Liturgy of The Word with their own catechists at 11am Sunday morning Mass
Offering the children a Liturgy of The Word, which is suited to their age and adapted to their stage of development, can become one of the key ways of helping them grow in faith.
The Children’s Liturgy is a real and positive route to help the children develop into real and informed Christians. It also illustrates to them that the word of The Lord has a natural and important place in their daily lives. By allowing the children the opportunity to participate at their own level, to be active, and to be involved, helps to build a healthy relationship between The Liturgy and their daily living. It also provides the children with a strong base for sincere and lasting faith.
The children gather in the Church and begin the Mass with everyone else. After the Sign of the Cross and the Greeting, the Priest calls the children forward, presents them with a Bible and the adult leaders process with the children to the “upper room” The children come back into church at the offertory where they display what they have done and then some of them take part in the Offertory procession.
If you would like to help with this important ministry, please let Father or Veronica know. Following a mandatory PVG check We will welcome you in joining our team of dedicated volunteers.
This is not a closed group – all primary school age children in the Church are welcome and encouraged to attend
