This is a special Sunday morning opportunity for children to celebrate the Liturgy of the Word during the 9:00am and 11:00am Masses.

The children are invited to gather in the church with a catechist prior to the first reading. They are sent forth by the community with blessing and song to listen and reflect on the Sunday Children's Sunday readings. They return to the assembly before the presentation of the gifts. The Gospel message is shared with the children through ritual, Scripture and interactive reflection.
