Liturgy of the Word Kids

Contact: Anne Gibson, 410-323-0268

Every Sunday during the 9:30 Mass, children between the ages of 4 and 13 receive the Gospel in small groups divided by grade. They depart together to our classrooms after the call to worship and return at the consecration of the Eucharist. Groups are led by volunteer parishioners, with the oversight of our Minister for Children’s Education. Together, the children read the Scriptures that their families are hearing in church and then open up the Word through art activities, role-play, and dialogue. The application of the Gospel to their daily lives is considered and discussed. The groups are guided by materials published by Pflaum, and all leaders are STAND trained.
