Children's Liturgy of the Word during Mass

The aim of CLOW is to provide the children of the Parish with the Gospel presented at a level appropriate to their age group, and an opportunity to discuss what it means and how it is applicable to their own life.

There are two age groups, Pre-Schoolers and early Infants and then the older infant and juniors. The children are escorted from the church to the Parish Hall at the beginning of Mass, and are returned for the offertory. Each group hears the Gospel, or one of the readings from Mass at their own level. They talk about it and have an activity such as colouring a picture, which they take with them back to church and to their families.

You can help by volunteering to help with any of the groups on a rota basis, (Training will be given to ensure you comply with our child protection rules) or by helping with the administration tasks such as photocopying.

There are no regular meetings, but teams of Catechists form the rota sometimes meet to plan their sessions. For further details contact the parish office.
