Children’s Liturgy

At Mass every Sunday morning, the younger children participate in their own version of the Liturgy of the Word.

Children must be registered using this form

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the Children’s Liturgy was held online (by Zoom). We brought together these resources to give you an insight into what happens in the Children’s Liturgy. 

1. Sorry

After greeting each other, we begin Mass by saying “sorry” for anything we have done wrong over the last week.

2. Prayer

We pray together in silence, focused on the candle, speaking directly to God. However small we are, every one of us can speak to God in this way.

3. Thanks

We thank God for how good He is to us by singing the “Gloria”. The following recording only works if you take part: you must clap after each “Gloria!”

4. The Gospel Reading and reflection 

Each week we listen to a different story from the Gospel — the same one the grown-ups are hearing — and we reflect on it through drawings, puzzles and other activities.

5. Return to Mass

After the Children’s Liturgy, we rejoin the rest of the community for Mass.
