Every Sunday at the 11:00 am Mass (during the school year), children who have not received the First Communion are invited to listen to the Gospel at their level of understanding. Just before the greater community hears the Sunday readings, the priest calls the children forward, blesses them and they then process out to their own gathering space at the Parish Hall. They will hear the Sunday readings, a short reflection and they will pray together and/or work on their reflection through art making or crafts. The children are led by adult and youth volunteers.
To serve as leaders for the Liturgy of the Word for Children, you must meet these criteria:
- Baptized and registered in this parish.
- Have completed the process of volunteer screening, and signed the Model Code of Conduct form, in order to assist in developing and implementing uniform diocesan guidelines for appropriate behaviour for all religious and lay persons involved in ministries and other activities.
To register, please contact the Parish Office at 403-289-2591.
