Through a separate Liturgy of the Word for children, we aim to introduce children of infant to school age to important aspects of God's message. 

 

We try to do this by allowing them to celebrate God's word at their own pace, giving them the opportunity to offer their thoughts and reflections, following the pattern of normal congregational liturgy.

 

We hope that they gain an experience of being part of a community, the parish, and the feeling that their thoughts and ideas are valued by that community. By using symbols and movements of the liturgy we endeavour to help them discover how the Word of God has meaning in their daily lives. We hope that by offering a Children's Liturgy of the Word, we can help support families with young children in the parish.

 

Children’s Liturgy runs from September to June at the 11am Mass where children are gathered in the parish hall. Their lessons are based on the Gospel reading for that day. After the session, they return to the Church to bring up the gifts for the offertory and re-join their families. 

 

Completion of Responsible Faith Ministry Police Waiver is required.
