All the children are invited to a celebration which is an extension of the main assembly’s celebration. This celebration of the word with children (Children’s Liturgy) lead by and adults, is a part of the Eucharistic liturgy. It draws children into the life and work of Jesus so that God’s word might take flesh in them, as it did in Jesus, giving glory to God every day in the way they share God’s love, unconditionally. It is the ritual celebration of God’s presence with us.
The Education team for the three parishes prepares the candidates for the sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Communion and Confirmation.
