Every Sunday at the 9:30 am Mass, young children (ages 3-6) are dismissed for Children's Liturgy of the Word. The children are called forward after the Opening Prayer and then are led to the prepared space in our chapel by a dismissal catechist. Here, a separate Liturgy of the Word is held using the Children's Lectionary and other age-appropriate resources which enable the youngsters to take a more conscious and active part in the Sunday Mass. Then, the children return to the larger community for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
We are looking for interested adults and high school students who would like to assist with this rewarding ministry. Brief training and materials are provided. Please contact Colette Speca in the Faith Formation Office at 724.941.9587, ext 113 for more information.
