Children's Liturgy of the Word
Offered Sundays at 11:30am Mass*
Children’s Liturgy of the Word is a uniquely different experience from Sunday school or catechism classes. This experience allows children to attend Mass with their family and then participate in a child-focused liturgy during the Liturgy of the Word. The children process out of the main assembly together with catechists and gather in the St. Joseph Chapel on the Lower Level of the Basilica. They hear the same readings, sing the psalm, discuss and dialogue about the readings together hoping to give them a morsel to chew on for the rest of their week.
*Children's Liturgy of the Word will be offered during Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter seasons. Dates are as follows: November 29 through January 10; February 14 through May 15.
