St. Margaret of Scotland offers opportunities for children and young people to engage with the Word of God and interact with each other via Youth Ministry and Children’s Liturgy of the Word.
St. Margaret of Scotland Youth Ministry seeks to give our young parishioners a place to deepen their faith through fellowship, service projects, liturgies, and other events. We hold monthly meetings and offer service opportunities to help us live out our faith. We also host Youth Mass to which we invite all parish families and children, and we serve in liturgical ministries. Throughout the year we have additional social events.
Children’s Liturgy of the Word
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 associated learning activity is provided.
Our goal: 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.
