Children’s Liturgy of the Word

At Masses during which Children’s Liturgy of the Word  is offered, the celebrant will call the children (grades K-3) forward and give them a blessing. A catechist and helper will lead the children into one or two of our adjacent meeting rooms , where children will read and discuss the same readings as the congregation. The children celebrate the Liturgy of the Word just like the entire congregation, except they get to move and interact in a way appropriate for their age level. After the homily and before the Eucharistic Prayers, the children return to the main worship area and rejoin their families.

Please keep your preschoolers with you during Liturgy of the Word or take advantage of our parish childcare during Mass.
We will let the presiding priest and sacristan know in advance the age groups that will gather each Sunday. Please listen to the invitation when Father calls the children forward.
We would love to share with you our great resource materials and offer you an orientation if you are interested in this ministry. Please contact Hannah Hach at (360) 292-7114 or email
