Childrens liturgy

Children’s Liturgy


Why?

Young children often find the readings and homily at Mass hard to understand. By coming to their own Children's Liturgy group they listen to the Gospel, pray and share an activity to help understand the Good News they have heard. As the children grow older they learn more about the readings at Mass and about liturgy, giving them a good foundation to begin preparation for their First Holy Communion.

Who?

There are three Children's Liturgy groups;

Little Angels is for children from their 3rd birthday to Reception;

School aged children Reception to year 1;

School aged children years 2-3.

The groups run from September each year to July following the school year. We don't meet during the main school holidays but do over the half-term holidays. When there is a special child friendly Mass, such as 1st Holy Communion, Church Parades or a Family Mass, the children remain in the church.

You?

The Children's Liturgy is run by volunteers, parent catechists, who have had a CRB check and who wish to pass on their faith. We are always looking for Catholics who would like to become a children's liturgy catechist. If you are interested in finding out more please contact Magali Nicole, Children's Liturgy Co-Ordinator c/o the parish office.
