Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)
CHILDREN’S LITURGY OF THE WORD (CLOW) is in need of volunteers to share the Word of the Lord with the children of our Parish during the 11:00 Mass. The Leader and the children leave the church before the Liturgy of the Word begins and congregate in DeLuca Hall to break open the Word of God. The schedule is done in two to three month intervals. The leaders are usually scheduled once a month as long as we have enough volunteers to rotate. Please consider sharing your faith with our 4 year old to 1st graders during the Mass. If interested please contact Cindy Capell who is in charge of the scheduling at firstname.lastname@example.org.
