The Liturgy of the Word for Children is held at the 9:00AM Mass on Sunday. This allows the younger children to have their own version of the Liturgy of the Word while the main Liturgy continues in the church.
The Children's Liturgy comprises of child friendly
Singing or Role playing to animate the Gospel readings.
It is suitable for younger children aged 4 to 7 years who have not started First Holy Communion Preparation but who are old enough to participate fully in the session.
Ministers of the Word are responsible for reading the First and Second Scriptural readings and the Prayers of the Faithful at Mass.
Altar servers are privileged and honoured to serve the priest at Our Lord's Altar.
Anyone can apply to become a server, male or female, providing they have the desire to assist the priest at Mass and other liturgies throughout the Church year, and have made their First Holy Communion.
After a period of probation the server is enrolled into the Guild of St Stephen and will then wear the bronze medal. Regular training sessions are held, because a good server doesn't just know what to do but why it is being done
