Children’s Liturgy of the Word

For more information on this program, please contact Lauren Nelson at 630-353-4528 or lnelson@sjalisle.org.

We are unable to have Children’s Liturgy of the Word under current guidelines and restrictions. The program will return when restrictions lift.

During the Children’s Liturgy of the Word, the children gather for a brief welcome and opening prayer, listen to the Scriptures proclaimed from the Children’s Lectionary, are led in singing a Psalm and Gospel Acclamation, and hear the Gospel proclaimed by one of the adult leaders.  An age-appropriate reflection on the Word is shared by the leader through stories, discussions, pictures, and interactive questions.  Following this, the children profess a simple Creed, pray their Prayers of Intercession, and finally return to their families before the Liturgy of the Eucharist, typically at the time of the Presentation of the Gifts. We are excited to offer this program during the school-year at 9:30am Mass.
