Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)

Celebrated during the 10 o’clock Mass on most Sunday’s, CLOW helps children ages 5-10 participate more fully in the Sunday liturgy by listening to the scriptures and reflecting on them at their level.

Children are seated with their parents during the Opening Rites. Before the first scripture reading, the celebrant will announce that children participating in CLOW should come forward. They are led to the Gathering Area/Prayer Room by adult leaders who proclaim the readings adapted for children and guide them in a reflection.  Children are returned to the gathered community in pews at communion. Children have not left Mass! No need to register and you can join your child.

CLOW depends upon adult volunteers. You’ll work on a team and your commitment would be about one Sunday each month.  Please contact the REO to learn more.
