Children are welcome at all Masses. During the first half of the Sunday 9.30am Mass, younger children are invited to join the Children’s Liturgy group in the Parish Room. Children should arrive before 9.30am in order to start the group session on time.
The group is for children aged 3-8 and during each session we aim to present the Gospel for that Sunday, in a way that they can understand. The children will participate in about 30 minutes of prayer, readings and activities, specially tailored for their age group.
The children then return to the main church for the Offertory Procession, where Fr Agustin will invite one of them to explain to the congregation what they have learned during the liturgy.
New children are always welcome to join the group and, for the very young ones, a parent is welcome to stay with them.
Children who have completed their First Holy Communion should attend the full Mass in the church, but are welcome to join the Children’s Liturgy group up until the 2nd term of Year 4, or if they are helping a younger sibling.
Our aim is to make the children’s experience of the church a meaningful one, helping them to grow in the faith of the Catholic Church and devleop as active members of our parish community.
If you would like your child to attend Children’s Liturgy, please speak to Fr Agustin.
