Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW), is an opportunity for children in Grades K to 3 to hear the living and active word of God interpreted for them, leading them to deeper faith. Dismissed from Mass as the Liturgy of the Word begins, children are escorted to the Sarah Black R00m in the Parish Center where they hear the Scripture readings proclaimed in 'child friendly' terms. The Word becomes alive and present to the children as discussion unfolds. In addition, children experience active participation in the liturgy through the ritual language of symbol, gesture, posture and space. Children are escorted back to the Church where they join their families for the continuation of the Mass - the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
