In the first part of the Mass we celebrate the Liturgy of the Word. We listen to our readers as they deliver the Word of God to us by reading from the Bible. This is followed by the Gospel and the Homily. This part of the Mass can be long, especially for young children, who are easily bored by readings which they do not yet understand. The Children’s Liturgy teaches children about the Gospel at a level they can understand and enjoy. This helps to make the Mass a positive and meaningful experience for children, while helping them to grow in the Catholic faith and become full and active members of our Parish Community.
