Children's Liturgy 

 

Children's Liturgy of the Word

 Every Sunday at the 10:00 Mass

 

 

What is Children's Liturgy?

     - Children ages 4, 5, and 6 are called to the altar by the priest before the First Reading of the Mass.  The children follow the Leader into the Sacristan's Room where they will hear the readings of the day at their level using the Children's Lectionary of Masses.  The readings will be discussed at their level using stories, songs, activities and games to help them understand the readings.  The children are then brought back into the church at the time of the Offertory where they will return to be seated with their families for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

 

Volunteers are needed to help lead Children's Liturgy each week. 

Parents, Grandparents and teens are invited to lead the children, read the readings, help with activities, assist with crowd control, and help make the children feel welcome and to become followers of Jesus.

 

To volunteer, call Miriam at 352-796-2096, Ext. 106 or email at dre@stantchurch.org
