Children's Liturgy of the Word

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me."  (Matthew 19:14)

"I love the way the leaders engage the children and help them relate to the Word of the Lord at their level; Children's Liturgy at Holy Cross is very lively, with song, visual aids, and participation by the children." - Marie R.

Come join our dynamic, multi-cultural community where parents support each other in raising children of faith. Children's Liturgy of the Word provides a space for children to hear the word of God in a way they can understand, appreciate and connect with through imagination, movement and song. Children ages 5 through 2nd grade are welcome to attend as well as their parents. Younger children are also welcome with a parent. No registration is necessary. The group is called up to the front of the church after the Gloria for a blessing, walks over to the art/music cabin to the left of the church, and returns to the church at the presentation of the gifts for the Liturgy of the Eucharist and the rest of mass.

Service Sunday
The Children’ s Liturgy Community joins Holy Cross Social Concerns Committee monthly for Service Sunday from 10:15am to 11:15am in Lewis Hall. It is typically the first Sunday of the month September through May. The purpose of Service Sunday is to build community at Holy Cross, to have parents take an active role in the faith formation of their children, and to make a positive impact in our community. It begins with a short story time around a theme (past themes have included Care for Creation, Sharing God’s Love, Interconnectedness and Peace) followed by a service project for families. Clothing and food donations are also accepted. Come join the fun!
