Youth Events and Activities: 

Children's Liturgy.

Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) has resumed during Mass on most of the Sundays when there is Faith Formation class. This if for children 4-8 years old. During the Liturgy of the Word, Fr Ken will call up the children and excuse them for a lesson of their own (approx 20 mins.).

The CLOW leaders will take the children to the Conference Room off the Sacristy. Children return during the envelope collection.

Registration is not required but very helpful.

If interested and for registration, email Sally Herceg at
