 Children’s Liturgy of the Word (acronym CLOW) at 10 A.M. Mass     Sept. 24, Oct. 29, Jan. 28, Feb 25, Mar. 18 and Apr. 29

Here’s an explanation. Children come to church with their families as usual and are taken out with a leader for the Liturgy of the Word.  The first reading and the Gospel are adapted for kids (no second reading).  They also sing a psalm response and Gospel Acclamation composed just for them.  There is a discussion homily with input from kids. A simple creed and Prayers of the Faithful are also adapted for children. They get a take home sheet for follow up during the week, and are back in church during the collection. It is not a Sunday school lesson, but liturgy for children. It is geared for kids in K5 -5th grade.  Younger children are welcome to attend with a parent.  It’s a win-win for all. The kids get a better understanding of the Scripture readings and parents can focus on the readings and homily in church.
