Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) is for children PK through Grade 2. Children begin Mass in church with their parents for the procession and opening prayers. Before the first reading, Fr. Gary invites the children to come forward along with the adult CLOW Leaders. They process downstairs to a worship area where the leaders proclaim the Sunday scriptures in age appropriate language and guide the children in discussions. This, along with related activities brings the scriptures to life and makes them meaningful for the children.
Following the Prayer of the Faithful, they return to their families and the rest of the community to unite their prayers for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
If your child is anxious about leaving you, or about where he or she is going, you are welcome to come along until your child feels more comfortable and secure.
