CLOW - Children's Liturgy of the Word

Children ages 4 - 8 are invited to the Chapel to participate in "LOW" during the 10:00 Mass on Sundays. Children are given the opportunity  to listen to and to talk about age appropriate readings, and are invited to pray for their special needs as well as those of the Church and community.  The children are called up as a group before the first reading and return to their parents in the main Church after the Prayers of the Faithful. Handouts for home activities and discussions are also given weekly.

Children's Liturgy of the Word is held weekly from September to June.
