Children's Liturgy of the Word

    Children’s Liturgy of the Word is held during the 9:00 am Mass for children in 1st through
    5th grade. Children gather in church with the St. Theresa community for opening prayer.  
    Following the prayer, the children are called to the altar for a blessing after which they
    process with their leaders to the Church Hall for their own celebration of God’s Word.

    Children’s Liturgy of the Word follows the same order of the Mass: Old Testament reading,
    Responsorial Psalm, Gospel, Reflection, Creed, and Prayers of the Faithful. The readings
    for Children’s Liturgy are the same as those being read in the church but are written for
    children. During Children’s Liturgy of the Word, the children are active participants in the
    liturgy and have the opportunity to reflect on the readings and pray together.

    The children rejoin their families in church for Liturgy of the Eucharist.

    Children’s Liturgy of the Word will be held Sundays from October through June (except
    holidays and special events).
