Immaculate Conception Catholic Church

Childrens' Liturgy of the Word


Children's Liturgy of the Word is offered at our 8:00 am Sunday mass (except for school holidays). Father or Deacon invites school-age children (who are able to leave their parents) to come up to the front of the church, to share in the Good News, and to go with a trained volunteer and assistant. In the parish hall, the children learn about God by praying together, hearing and discussing the Sunday gospel message, along with doing an activity that is age appropriate. After the homily they return to mass for the Liturgy of the Eucharist. 

Our littlest children (under school age) are welcome to play in the vestibule of our church., while being supervised by an adult. We have age appropriate books and toys to enjoy! God bless your family!
