Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)
children's hands CLOW Program
9:30AM Mass

We invite your children (K-6th grades) to participate in our CLOW program at 9:30AM Mass. This program is offered year-round except during summer. No registration is required, and it's free.

Children are dismissed just after the opening prayers and go with an adult presider to the Parish Center Chapel to hear the Word proclaimed and explained in more age-appropriate language. During CLOW our children's choir sings. The children return during the Preparation of the Gifts.

Parents are welcome to accompany their children to the Parish Center Chapel during the Liturgy of the Word and then return with them for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
