Marsha McIntyre,

Children's Liturgy of The Word is taught weekly throughout the year during the Liturgy of The Word at 9:00 a.m. liturgy. Children in attendance range from kindergarten through second grade. Teachers are volunteers who currently rotate on a 12-week cycle. The teachers are typically 2 adults and one middle or high school helper. During the Liturgy of The Word with the children, the lesson usually includes accompany at least one of the readings from Sunday's liturgy. The teachers do not require any specific training except the Safe Environment, as requested by the Archdiocese and a background check. Books with suggested lesson plans are available to be used.
