Children's Liturgy of the Word

Hank Belz, 314-791-1131 or hank.belz@gmail.com,  clowstjoecot@gmail.com

“Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Mt. 19:14.
Children in grades kindergarten through 4th are invited to participate in the Liturgy of the Word at the 5:00 p.m., 8:45, 10:30 and 12:15 Masses. This ministry designed to allow the children to understand the Readings and Gospels in a simpler language.

At the start of the Liturgy of the Word, the children are invited to the St. Joseph Room with a Leader to reflect on the readings, profess their faith and pray their petitions. The children return to the main church after the Presentation of the Gifts. Please check the parish website to find out which grades are being called at a particular Mass.

Please prayerfully consider becoming a Leader and sharing your faith with the children of our parish.
