Eucharistic Worship and Synodality: The Mass as central to our Journey Together

Presented by Gregory Beath

As the Bishops and lay representatives discern how to develop a Church that is more synodal, we can ask: in what ways does our celebration of Eucharist help us to live the communion, participation and mission envisioned in a Church that journeys together?

Liturgy of the Word with Children

Sundays at the 10 AM Mass

Through the dedication of volunteers, we are fortunate to be able to invite children to celebrate the Liturgy of the Word with their age and ability in mind. We believe that the Lord is present when we gather for worship and when the Scriptures are proclaimed. By providing a celebration of the Liturgy of the Word with children, we help our youngest parishioners encounter the Lord, interiorize the message of the Sunday Gospel, and pray together. We hope that this experience of the Liturgy will help our children grow into that full, active, and conscious participation during the mass to which we are all called.

We provide this ministry to children from ages 4 to 9. A parent is welcome to accompany a child who is too shy to participate on their own.

Volunteers are needed! Are you a person of prayer? Do you seek the Lord within the Scriptures? Are you at ease in the presence of children? Are you comfortable in front of a group? Do you have a couple of hours once or twice a month to prepare for the Liturgy of the Word? Are you a young person that would like to read the scriptures, sing, or play an instrument? Are you able to gently assist with keeping a prayerful atmosphere? Then, you probably have the gifts necessary to serve in a variety of ways within this ministry. To learn more, please

contact Maria: 437-993-8458. Volunteer Screening is mandatory.




IIf you are interested in making a casserole in support of the Good Shepherd Centre,

Please deliver your casseroles to the Ministry Centre prior to the last Monday of each month.

Thank you for helping!
