What is Children's Liturgy of the Word?
Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLW) is a program that invites school-aged children (kindergarten through grade 5) to leave the larger parish assembly during Mass to celebrate a concurrent Liturgy of the Word. The children return to the main parish assembly for the Liturgy of the Eucharist. The children experience the same readings and rituals as the larger parish assembly, but use a special children's lectionary with a homily experience geared for their age group.
At what Masses is CLW held?
CLW is held from September through early June at the 10:00 AM Mass. Occasionally, there will be no CLW, when something special (e.g., the Passion, First Communion) is taking place during the Mass that we do not want children to miss.

How can I get involved?
Children can come to CLW whenever they attend the 10:00 AM Mass. You do not need to sign up. If you are interested in becoming a liturgy leader or an assistant, please contact CLW Coordinator Teresa Jackson at email@example.com.
