Beginning this Sunday, October 5th, and every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month, we will celebrate the Children’s  Liturgy of the Word at the 10 o’clock Mass in St. Ignatius Church.  the 5th is School Bag Sunday. Please bring to church for a special blessing.
Our aim is to enrich the children’s liturgical experience of God’s presence in the WORD of Scripture at their own level of understanding.
Children from Kindergarten through Grade 6 are invited downstairs to the “Kid’s Chapel” where “Junior Lectors” from Junior High and Middle School proclaim the Sunday readings.  (Unfortunately we cannot include Nursery and Pre-K students at this time).
