The Celebration of the mass is at the heart of our Catholic Faith and we all experience it and are touched by its grace in our own way. In an effort to open up that grace to our smallest members here at St. Michael’s, we provide a separate Liturgy of the Word specially designed for children. The primary reason for dismissing the children from mass is to provide them with an environment where they are more likely to develop a deeper and richer appreciation for the Word of God in words and language that they understand. Our intention is not to merely babysit or entertain them – it is an opportunity for them to deepen and explore their faith through a wonderful liturgical experience and respond to God’s word in a way that touches their hearts by creating an opportunity to encounter the grace of Christ.
The children’s liturgy is offered at the Sunday morning mass October through May.
