Children’s Liturgy

The Liturgy of the Word with Children, often referred to as ‘Children’s Liturgy’ is a very common liturgical activity in our parish, offering our children the opportunity to listen and respond to the Sunday Gospel at an age-appropriate level.

This webpage offers access to resources for each week of the liturgical year together with supporting material that can be used in addition to current resources, and various other resources to help in the ministry of Children’s Liturgy.
