Children’s Liturgy of the Word [CLOW]

Children's Liturgy of the Word is designed for children ages 4-10.  It takes place during  both Masses the second weekend of every month. CLOW gives the children the opportunity to hear the readings written in more child-friendly language.  The smaller group setting also allows for better concentration and participation in the discussion of what we are to learn from those readings.

During each Mass, the priest or deacon will announce that CLOW is taking place and invite the children to line up in the middle aisle along with 1-2 of our CLOW leaders.  The group will go into the gathering space and share the readings, sing the psalm and discuss the readings and what we can learn from them. The children also pray the creed and offer petitions.  If time allows, the children are able to work on Children’s worship bulletins that include word games and puzzles that focus on the theme of the day’s gospel.  The children then return to sit with their families following the petitions.

CLOW leaders:  Adults and teens who would be interested in knowing more about how they can be a part of this ministry are encouraged to contact Carol Daun
