Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLW) is an important Ministry offered to the young children of St. Patrick Parish to encourage prayer and worship and to invoke excitement in Mass participation. CLW is offered weekly throughout the year at the 9 AM Mass to children in grades kindergarten through second grade. Children are “collected” after the Opening Blessing and brought to rooms upstairs in the church to receive the Gospel and Gospel message in terms that young children can understand. They work on a craft after learning about the message for the week and are returned to Mass after the Prayer of Intentions.
A complete list of job requirements and duties can be found here in the bulletin. This is a position open to any adult of our Parish - please pray over this and let your heart lead you! For more information contact Lori at email@example.com.
