Children’s Word

There is a group of people who help with Children’s Liturgy of the Word on a rota basis at the 9:00am and 11:00am Masses on Sundays in term time; three catechists run each session.

Children who have not yet made their First Holy Communion are invited with parents to to go with the leaders to the hall, where they participate in prayers and listen to a simplified version of the Gospel for that day. Once the Gospel has been read the children are encouraged to discuss the story and its meaning whilst enjoying an activity based on the theme. The children are led back into the church for the offertory.
