“Sometimes, moreover, if the place itself and the nature of the community permit, it will be appropriate to celebrate the Liturgy of the Word, including a homily, with the children in a separate, but not too distant room. Then, before the Eucharistic liturgy begins, the children are led to the place where the adults have meanwhile celebrated their own Liturgy of the Word”. Directory for Masses with Children
At Sacred Heart, after the opening prayer for Mass, the children in attendance process with the leaders of Children’s Liturgy out of church to their own Childrens’ Chapel. The children divide into two or three groups by age; each group has its own adult leader.
We make a great effort to avoid a classroom atmosphere; we create a prayerful and celebratory environment where the children can come to appreciate the Word of God and the ritual of our Sacred Liturgy.
