Children's Liturgy of the Word
Children's Liturgy Of the Word: For Children and Families
Sundays at the 9 a.m. Mass. St. John’s Children's Liturgy Of the Word program is structured to help children hear God’s message in a way that is more understandable for them. Here’s how it works: At the 9 am mass, after the Collect (opening prayer of the Mass), children from Kindergarten – 5th grade are invited to come forward and sent forth so they can hear God’s Word in a special way. We will use the Lectionary for Mass with Children. The children will then return back to mass with our shepherds (guides) to participate in the Liturgy of the Eucharist with their family. If you have any questions or would like to assist with this new ministry, please contact Deana Ditta at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the Parish Office at 631.878.0009.
