Children’s Liturgy of the Word

Children’s Liturgy of the Word needs your help! We would love to re-start this ministry, but at this time do not have an adult leader to coordinate the program. If you are interested in having a leadership role in this special ministry (support is provided!), please contact Jenny Cook at

Children’s Liturgy of the Word is offered at St. Patrick Church of Merna at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Masses.  It is an opportunity for children to hear and understand the Gospel message in a language suitable to their age and learn how it pertains to them in their own lives. Children are invited to break open the word, share prayers of the faithful, and say the Creed, all with a little fun thrown in! Children will be encouraged to reverently return to the assembly for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
