Children’s liturgy of the word is simply what it claims to be: a ritual for the proclamation of God’s Word with children.

  • It is a moment of salvation in which the living God communicates life to God’s children and in which they respond with admiration, praise, thanksgiving and petition.
  • It is worship, not catechesis or Sunday School.
  • It is for school aged children aged between 5 and 11 years. If younger children need to attend they would be accompanied by an adult.
  • It is a time to hear God’s word at an appropriate level.
  • It is an opportunity to hear the Gospel message and to consider how to practice it in life.

Children’s Ministers of the Word undergo formation in order to be more effective ministers.
