Faith Formation - Children's Liturgy of the Word(CLOW)

Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)

Children’s Liturgy of the Word gathers young children, ages 3 - 7 (Pre-K – Gr. 2 inclusive),  for an age-appropriate experience of sacred scripture.

CLOW is offered during the Sunday 11:15 am Mass on most weekends from September through April.  We hear God’s word in an environment that is suitable for children.

Children are dismissed after the opening prayer and gather in the Church Resource Room to hear the readings and a reflection on the Gospel. After a profession of faith and intercessions, children return to Mass during the offering. Children receive a worship bulletin based on the Gospel readings to remind them of the lesson for the day. Each Bulletin provides a code to use to access Games  and activities for the children to do at Home. CLOW Games at home.

This ministry exists because of the willing hearts of volunteers.

We have two specific needs.

  1. Catechists to lead the worship time. An outline of the worship time is provided to the catechists.
  2. Catechist Assistants to provide supervision and extra helping hands.


Please join us!  This is a volunteer experience that is minimal in commitment but high in reward. For more information about Children’s Liturgy of the Word or to volunteer, please contact  Christen Bryce/ Mary Eaton @ 518 273-7602  or email [email protected].
