This ministry offers young children an opportunity to experience the Word in a way that engages them at their level. This ministry occurs during the Liturgy of the Word at the 11:00 Sunday Mass. Children ages 4-5 are dismissed at the Opening Prayer to read and discuss the Gospel in a way that is meaningful to them. Children then work on an art project or worksheet that supports the Gospel they have just read. Children return to Mass after the Lord’s Prayer. Volunteers assist the children with activities and responses that allow them to really participate in the liturgy. Volunteer Commitment is approximately 1 hour per month. For more information or to volunteer contact Donna Martin at email@example.com. Children's Church Registration form
