Liturgy for Little Ones

Liturgy for Little Ones is an age-appropriate Liturgy of the Word offered for children in preschool through 2nd grade at the 5:00 Saturday and 10:30am Sunday Masses.  All children are welcome and encouraged to attend.  No pre-registration is necessary.


Just before the Liturgy of the Word begins for the assembly, the children are invited to come forward for a blessing from Father.  The children then proceed to a conference room in the Rectory along with their teachers.  During this special time, the teachers lead the children through songs, prayers and readings that are simplified for children.


The children learn about the same Scripture readings as the rest of the assembly. They are taught a simplified main message of the readings and complete a simple craft, coloring page or activity. During the time of the Presentation of the Gifts, they are lead back to their families.
