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.
Find out more about signing up for and volunteering to help with the Children’s Liturgy here.
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.
After greeting each other, we begin Mass by saying “sorry” for anything we have done wrong over the last week.
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.
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.
