Children’s Liturgy of the Word

Due to social distancing and other COVID guidelines, we are not currently able to have Children’s Liturgy of the Word. Please watch for an announcement as to when it will be restarting. Thank you for your understanding!

Children’s Liturgy of the Word provides an opportunity for children to hear and understand the Gospel message in a way that is suitable to their age.

Adult and teen volunteers are needed at the 9 AM and 11 AM Sunday Masses. Confirmation students earning service hours welcome to assist! All lessons are provided to leaders on the Friday before they serve, and all necessary materials are prepped and in the Children’s Liturgy Room (Room 11) before Masses begin.

All volunteers assisting in Children’s Liturgy of the Word are required to complete a background check and the mandatory online Safe Environment Training Program.

For more information on how to become involved or questions regarding training, please contact our Children’s Liturgy of the Word Coordinator, Jenny Cook, at 309-662-7361 x212 or jenny@stpatrickmerna.org.
