Faith Formation

Children’s Liturgy of the Word

Children ages 4-8 can participate in Children’s Liturgy of the Word every Sunday at the 11:00am Mass to hear the Gospel in their own words.  Children also sing songs and do activities before returning to their parents for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.  No registration is needed. Children will be called up during Mass and brought to the Chapel.  For further information or to volunteer to help, please contact Stacey King at (609) 214-8826 or
