Children’s Liturgy of the Word

Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) is an age-appropriate Liturgy of the Word offered for children during Mass. No pre-registration is necessary. All children are welcome and encouraged to attend.

At 9:30 am Mass, just before the Liturgy of the Word begins for the assembly, children are invited to go with the weekly leaders from the church to the Father Martin O’Hara room (chapel). During this special time, the volunteer leaders guide the children through prayers, songs 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 message of the readings and are encouraged to share that message with their parents after Mass.

New leaders for CLOW are always welcome.  This is a great opportunity for adults and middle school/high school youth to help eager youngsters learn the Word of the Lord. Guidance will be provided until our volunteers feel comfortable. No one walks alone.
