Children’s Liturgy of the Word

Child’s note to Mary

The Children’s Liturgy of the Word is a Worship time for children ages 3.5 to 9 years of age taking place during the 10:30am Sunday Mass in St. James’ Chapel. 
Children are received by Father Shawn or Deacon Blaine and sent with a blessing to listen to scripture readings, the Gospel, the Creed, to proclaim the faith, ask questions, and pray for their needs and the needs of the world.
