This lay ministry works with school age children from K to year 6. The children are invited to the Parish Monsignor O’Reilly Hall to listen to the Scriptures of the day in a language they can understand. Liturgy of the Word for children is offered at the 9.45am Sunday Mass during School Terms.
The aim is to help children grow in their faith and their understanding of the readings. Adults present and explore readings with children so they can respond to the beliefs of the creed and the prayers of the faithful.
Children will take home drawing and craft activities that will help them tell their lesson, encouraging children to share the story with their parents. Materials are based on scripture stories.
Members of the Children’s Liturgy Ministry need to have the ability to work with children and have the ability to share their faith and understanding of the readings in a meaningful way that will encourage the children’s faith to grow.
It is helpful to have experience in working or parenting children. Your gift of time to this ministry would be approximately 2 Mass times per school term.
