Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLW) (4 years old through 3rd grade)

Children who are 4 years old  through 3rd grade are invited to participate in Children's Liturgy of the Word during the Sunday 8:45 am and 10:30 am liturgies. Dismissal begins in September and runs through May. 

At the beginning of Mass, the children are called forward and are then dismissed. Guided by their leaders, they follow the same Liturgy format as the adults but at an age appropriate level.  The scripture readings for the Sunday are also presented to the children at an age appropriate level. The children rejoin their parents for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

This program is a supplement to, but not a replacement for, faith formation.


6th-8th Grade Faith Formation
