Children's Liturgy of the Word

Temporarily Suspended during the COVID pandemic!

Children's Liturgy of the Word is offered on most Sundays during the 10:30 am Mass from September through April. Children in Grades 1-5 are invited to go with their own Minister of the Word to hear the readings and the Gospel proclaimed at their own level. They are then given the opportunity to discuss the readings and offer their own prayer intentions before returning to Mass in time for the Liturgy of the Eucharist. 

What happens at the Children's Liturgy of the Word?

Hear the readings and the Gospel proclaimed at their own level and enjoy Catholic coloring pages, lesson plans, Mass worksheets, crosswords, word search puzzles, and more.

Who provides the Liturgy and activities?

The Liturgy is provided by parish volunteers who are required to have a background check performed and to attend Called to Protect Training provided by the Archdiocese of Portland.

Can I be a Liturgy of the Word volunteer?

Yes. Special requirements may apply. If you are interested in being a volunteer, please contact Patty Meadows.
