Children's Liturgy of the Word
Children’s Liturgy is offered on Saturdays during the 4:30 PM Mass and Sundays during the 10:30 AM Mass throughout the year. Children entering K through 2nd grade are invited to participate. After opening prayer, the priest/deacon will dismiss the children to the conference room where leaders will reflect on the day’s readings on a child’s level. Children will return to Mass after the homily. No registration is required.
If you are willing to volunteer as a teacher or helper, please contact the parish office at (812) 477-5405. High School age volunteers are welcome to assist the Adult leaders.
