Liturgy of the Word for Children

We are hoping to offer LWC for the 2021-2022 school year but are currently delaying the start date until we have a better idea what the fall COVID-19 situation will be. Please register now, so we get an idea of numbers, but we will not charge you the $10 fee until the program officially begins. Please continue checking this page for more information.

What is LWC?

Liturgy of the Word with Children (LWC) during Sunday Mass is a liturgical adaptation that provides an environment for “…active, conscious, authentic” participation of young children in the Liturgy of the Word proclaimed at Mass (Directory of Masses for Children, 1973, Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments, The Vatican). In LWC, children hear the words of Scripture in an easier to understand form and have the opportunity to respond to the Word of God in ways appropriate to their experience and capacity.

  • Open to children ages 3 to 2nd Grade
  • Two groups: ages 3 to 5 and K-2nd Grade
  • Offered at the 9:00 and 11:00am Sunday Masses
  • LWC cost $10 per child.
