Children's Liturgy of the Word

Children’s Liturgy of the Word(CLW)

 The Storytellers to the Children of the Community

 

At Mass, children are invited to come forward to attend the Children's Liturgy of the Word.  The children go to the Kiva  in the Family Life Building and the scripture is proclaimed to them.  This ministry serves the children from the ages 4-12, by proclaiming God’s Word on a level that they understand, and by reflecting on its meaning in their lives. Children gather with peers and adult leaders to pray, listen, sing, and discuss readings. Parents are always welcome to attend with their children. 

We would like to expand CLW to include the Sunday 5:00pm Mass and at all Masses when there are no baptisms.  In order to do that, we need more volunteers.  CLW ministers are asked to serve only once per month.  Leaders, assistants, monitors and song leaders are needed. Training is provided. 

You may help with CLW at any of the Masses where there is a need, however, you may attend any of the weekend Mass times.  You are not required to go to the same Mass where you are helping with CLW. 

Requirements:

  • An enthusiasm to work with children
  • A desire to learn more about Scripture
  • One hour per month to prepare with the Children’s Liturgy of the Word team
  • Attend the Keeping Children Safe training session once every three years.
