Children’s Liturgy online – 28 March 2021

It is Palm Sunday – the start of Holy Week… the most important few days of the whole year for Christians.

We start by celebrating Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem in the same way as people did more than 2000 years ago – waving palms and branches and preparing the way for Our Saviour.

Today’s Gospel gives us a sneak preview of all the highs and lows that we will share with Jesus in the coming days: from friendship and love through suffering and death to new life and hope on Easter Sunday.

It will be a dramatic journey. Are you ready?

Children’s Liturgy online – 21 March 2021

Today is the 5th Sunday of Lent. The time of preparing for Easter is nearly over.

In today’s Gospel, Jesus is worried about what is going to happen to him.

But he knows that it will lead to new life for him and for all of us.

And this will be a great reason to celebrate!

Let’s look for signs of new life around us…

Children’s Liturgy online – 14 March 2021

God loved the world so much that he sent his only son to save us – to be the light of the world.

Easter is approaching… and in today’s Gospel Jesus helps us to understand what is about to happen. Why did he die? And what does it mean that he rose from the dead?

Jesus said that he was like a light – shining on all that is good in the world. If the light goes out, we have to light it up again. So how do we keep the light burning?

Children’s Liturgy online – 7 March 2021

One day, Jesus went to the Temple in Jerusalem to celebrate an important feast. He got very angry at what he saw.

Can you imagine Jesus being angry? It’s not how we usually know him. Something must have been very wrong.

The Temple was the House of God, the most holy place for the Jews. But people were using it to make money and take advantage of others. Jesus thought that this was unfair and had to be stopped.

Jesus said that the Temple in which God lives is not just a building – but his own body.

So how can we make sure that Jesus doesn’t get angry again like he was in the Temple in Jerusalem?

Children’s Liturgy online – 28 February 2021

In today’s Gospel, Jesus takes three of his disciples up a mountain.

There, they see a bright light and hear a voice telling them to listen to Jesus.

The disciples realise that this is a special moment.

What does this moment mean for us?
