Liturgical Ministries

Liturgy Committee

Children’s Liturgy

The Children’s Liturgy Ministry is dedicated to bringing the Word of God to children in a comfortable and relatable environment, allowing them to connect God’s teachings to their everyday lives.
Our Children’s Liturgy sessions are held in conjunction with the Sunday 11.15am mass, occurring on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month.
At the begining of the mass. an announcement will be made to invite all children to participate the Children’s Liturgy. Following a blessing by the Priest, our dedicated volunteer liturgical leaders will guide the children to the narthex, where they listen to the day’s Gospel reading. These leaders will explain the reading and also engage the children in meaningful discussions about how it directly relates to their daily experiences.
After this enlightening discussion, we offer a variety of engaging activities, such as craft projects, music sessions, or other relevant activities, to reinforce the lesson and create a dynamic and immersive learning experience for our young participants. Our aim is to nurture a deeper understanding of faith and a strong connection to God’s teachings within our children’s hearts and minds.

Junior Altar Servers

The altar servers’ primary role is to assist the priest in the celebration of the liturgy during Mass, including carrying the processional candle(s), holding the book for the priest celebrant when he is not at the altar, and assisting the priest when he receives the gifts from the people.
Junior altar servers serve alongside adult altar servers at Saturday evening mass and Sunday morning masses. Children, both boys and girls, who have received their First Holy Communion, are welcome to participate in this Ministry. They will undergo a training session conducted by the Parish Priest and/or Sacristan, as well as mentoring by adult altar servers.
