Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLW) provides our children, from the kindergarten through 4th grade, with weekly religious education during our 10:00 a.m. Sunday Masses from September through May.
Children who wish to participate simply come to the front of Church when Father invites them forward before the Liturgy of the Word. The Teacher(s) and assistants help the children down to the Church Hall for CLW.
The children’s experience of CLW is centered on the Gospel for the day or one of the weekly readings. Their instruction includes listening to the Gospel which is read aloud and participating in an activity period where interactive questions are asked and answered, games are played or an associated learning activity is provided.
Our goal is to introduce children to the life of Jesus through the Gospel stories at a level that is suitable for their understanding.
During the coming year, we hope to increase our number of adult volunteer instructors; reach as many kindergarten through 4th grade students as possible; and continue to provide meaningful Gospel instruction.
