Children’s Liturgy of the Word Autumn Programme for those serving and those who are interested in serving in this ministry.

The Church makes especial provision for helping children at Mass. On Sunday if sufficient numbers of children are present they can share in a form of the Liturgy of the Word shaped to their needs and understanding. It is a wonderful way of helping the young grow in their knowledge of the Gospel and the message of Jesus Christ.

Lay people lead these young Christians in listening and responding to the Word of God and help to discover what the Lord is saying to us.

The Church provides principles and guidelines to help adults in this great work. In our diocese we are offering an opportunity for those who are new to this ministry (and anyone who would like a refresher).

There will be two sessions looking at principles, practicalities and resources for Children’s Liturgy of the Word. The programme ends with a Blessing and participants will receive a Certificate recognising their training.

The programme consists of two sessions:


Session 1: Monday 30 October, 7.00 – 9.00pm
Session 2: Monday 6 November, 7.00 – 9.00pm

Venue: St Hilda’s Resource Centre, West Road, Newcastle upon Tyne NE15 7PY.

Cost: £10.00 per participant (invoiced via your parish following the event).

Booking Deadline: Monday 23 October 2023

If you would like to come along, please contact your parish priest to discuss with him and then he (or the parish secretary) can complete a registration form on your behalf.
