Children’s Liturgy of the Word


All elementary school children are invited to Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) at the 11:00 Mass. After the Introductory Rites, Father will ask the children to come forward for a blessing. Children are brought to the CLOW spaces by the catechists to receive the Word using age-appropriate materials. Children rejoin the congregation at the Offertory.


We have two CLOW sessions: for children second grade and under and a second for older elementary school children, third through fifth grade. They meet in separate spaces in the back of the church. All children are invited; an adult should attend with children under three.  


The goal of CLOW is for the children to “graduate” from CLOW into Mass with the regular assembly with an understanding of the Gospel of the day and with an understanding of why we do certain things at Mass.
