• All children ages Pre-School through Grade 4, are invited to attend the Sunday 10:00 AM Mass with their family and attend Children’s Liturgy of the Word.

    After the Opening Prayer Father invites the children to receive a blessing in front of the altar.

    The children will then process & follow the catechist to a special room where they will hear the readings, responsorial psalm, and gospel using the Children’s Lectionary (children’s version of the readings).

    Song, drama, fingerplays, puppets, plus arts & crafts are a special part of Childrens' Liturgy of the Word.

    Adults and teens interested in becoming a Children's Liturgy of the Word catechist or aide should contact Mrs. Elizabeth Kos at 708-447-1020 or ebkos@stmaryriverside.org
