  • Children's Liturgy of the Word provides liturgy preparation pages and liturgy guides for every Sunday and holy day of obligation from September 9, 2012, through September 1, 2013. Each liturgy guide includes words of dismissal for the presider, an opening and closing prayer, petitions for the Prayer of the Faithful, and the full text of an interactive homily or reflection that connects the Word to the life experiences of children.

     

    This resource is different from many of the other resources on the market. Rather than focusing on catechizing or entertaining the children, Children's Liturgy of the Word allows the power of the liturgy to act on children, facilitating their growing relationship with God and allowing them to testify to their own experiences of God's presence. Rather than following a traditional classroom model of a lesson followed by an activity or game as many other resources do, this resource closely follows the structure of the Liturgy of the Word being celebrated in the main assembly, as stipulated by the Directory for Masses with Children and Introduction to the Lectionary for Masses with Children. This resource makes leading a liturgically appropriate celebration of the Word easy, even for inexperienced leaders.

     

    Children's Liturgy of the Word is written by Maureen A. Kelly, an internationally known catechist and lecturer. She has an MA in Theology from the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium and has held parish, diocesan, and national positions in child and adult catechesis and formation. She is one of the founding members of the North American Forum on the Catechumenate.

    We use Children’s Liturgy of the Word because it concentrates on the essentials of preparing a weekly liturgical experience for children. Its emphasis on prayer and worship invites children to enter into the Liturgy of the Word with a sense of sacred presence. The scripture background pages and connections to Church teaching help to provide a context for the leaders. This resource gives our leaders the tools to feel confident in their ability to lead prayer for children that will be meaningful for their everyday lives and growth in faith. Children’s Liturgy of the Word helps children experience communal worship at their developmental level, and enables them to establish the practice, and experience the joy, of participation in the Sunday liturgy.
