Children’s Liturgy (cancelled at this stage due to Covid-19)
St Michael’s Children’s Liturgy is scheduled to occur on each Saturday and Sunday Mass. However, Children’s Liturgy is not held during school holidays, due to the volume of visiting children typically in the parish.
It is important that the younger children receive the word of God in a way they can easily relate to and understand. Approximately 10 children attend the liturgy each week.
The purpose of the Children’s Liturgy is give the children some quality time and also give parents of young families a break from distractions. A very important part of our parish future resides with the children and if we can give the children just one small message each week, then we are succeeding.
These parishioners assist at Mass by distributing both the body and blood at our weekday and Sunday masses and they take Holy Communion to the sick and aged in their homes.
