LITURGY OF THE WORD FOR CHILDREN

Old St. Mary’s Liturgy of the Word for children in pre-kindergarten through third grade will be offered during the summer at the 8:30 AM Mass only.

The children are invited to gather at the foot of the altar after the Opening Prayer of the liturgy and are dismissed for the lesson, returning to the assembly after the Prayer of the Faithful.

The gospel of the day is presented to the children in age-appropriate language along with occasional activities based on the gospel message.  Volunteers from the parish who have been screened and trained by the Coordinator of Religious Education facilitate Liturgy of the Word for Children.
