The Sunday liturgy is the source and strength for all Catholic Christians. We are fed in the Word and in the Eucharist to go forth and do what we are called to do. Thus it is critical that from the earliest years we hear what God is telling us in the readings.
In order to make the scripture more accessible, the parish provides an opportunity for young children to go to the Hall with adults who have been trained to proclaim the Word for children. The adults use the Lectionary for Children in which the readings are the same as those heard in the church but the wording is simplified and the reflection on the readings is geared to the lives of the children. The responses to questions and the petitions the children offer reflect a deeply rooted understanding of our faith.
