Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)
Children’s Liturgy of the Word will take a break for August and begin again in September.
As we take a break from Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW), we are looking for much needed volunteers to continue this important ministry which will resume on September 9. A brief information session will be held on the north side of church on August 19 and August 26 (please attend 1 only) for about 15 minutes after 9:00 Mass.
Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) is an age-appropriate Liturgy of the Word offered for ages 4 and up at the St. Ann’s 9:00 AM Mass. No pre-registration is necessary. All children are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Just before the Liturgy of the Word begins for the assembly, children are invited to go with the weekly leaders from the church to the Chapel. During this special time, the volunteer leader leads the children through prayers, songs and readings that are simplified for children.
At this popular program, children learn about the same Scripture readings as the rest of the assembly. They are taught a simplified main message of the readings and are encouraged to share that message with their parents after Mass.
Volunteers are needed to read and teach the lessons each week, as well as to assist with the supervision of the children, and coordinate the timing of the program. This is a great opportunity for adults and middle school/high schoolers to help these eager youngsters learn the Word of the Lord. We would love for you to get involved in this wonderful program. To get started, please email Gloriann at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All volunteers must complete our compliance training, VIRTUS (https://www.virtusonline.org/virtus/index.cfm?msg=Unknown%20User%20ID), before volunteering. For information, please contact email@example.com
