Celebrate the Lectionary - 10:30 Mass ONLY

Celebrate the Lectionary (CTL) is a Liturgy based program for young people that occurs during the 10:30 Mass from mid-September until Pentecost Sunday.  The children are divided into two groups; the younger group children are pre-school until the age of First Communion and the older group children are communicants, generally from grade two to grade six.  The division is flexible depending upon the size of the groups and the maturity of the children.
The children attend Mass with their parents and are invited to leave Mass immediately before the readings and homily.  The readings of the day are shared and explained in an age appropriate fashion.  There is often a craft or paper to help present the Gospel message.  Students return to their parents just before Communion.
There is no cost, but we do ask that students fill out a registration form so that we can get to know the students by name.
We are always looking for Virtus Trained volunteers.  Per Diocesan directive, CTL cannot be held without two leaders per age group.
