Children’s Liturgy Group
On the First Sunday of every month, we celebrate a Children’s Mass at 08:45. The children play an active part in this Mass and we especially welcome families with young children to this Mass.
Every other Sunday, during the 08:45 Mass, children are invited to share in the enjoyment of the parish’s thriving Children’s Liturgy Group. The group is run by parishioners (all of whom are DBS checked) and help is particularly welcomed from parents. The Liturgy of the Word is presented in a child-friendly manner to two age categories – one for pre-First Sacraments and the other for Post-First Sacrament children.
Each week an activity in the form of a craft, a game or role play is undertaken to enhance the children’s understanding of that week’s Gospel. Children are safely escorted to and from the Parish Centre, leaving parents free to enjoy Mass. Parents wishing to accompany their children and stay until they are settled are very welcome.
The Group returns to Church for the offertory procession where they present what they have learnt to the presiding priest.
We do also arrange many activities for children during the year such as a Christmas Crib Service, Lenten activities and an Easter egg hunt in the presbytery garden. New leaders and/or helpers are very welcome and a new helper will always be paired with an experienced leader.
