The Children’s Liturgy is a welcoming and nurturing part of the St. George Community. Children enjoy the Gospel and discussion in an informal, reflective way that is age-appropriate. The goal is to have the children relate to Jesus at their level and to enjoy participation at Mass. The Children’s Liturgy takes place during the Sunday 10:30 Mass, from September to May. The children are divided into a Younger Group (3-6 year olds) and an Older Group (7-10 year olds). The younger group meets in the Sacristy behind the Altar, and the older group meets downstairs in the conference room of the Church Hall. The children leave the Mass before the first reading and return after the prayers of the intercessions.
Leaders of the Children’s Liturgy are scheduled only once per month, depending on your availability. Volunteers for the Younger Group are provided with a complete package, including the Gospel reading, suggestions for leading an informal discussion and a colouring page. The Older Group uses a Gospel reading and prayer, discussion and charades to reinforce the Gospel.
Children’s Liturgy is an important ministry, yet requires minimal preparation and a very small time commitment. We are always happy to welcome new volunteers. Please contact Siobhan Stewart at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
