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.

Requesting a Communion Visit
Communion VisitationBecause there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread.

(1 Corinthians 10: 17)

Our Communion Visitation Ministers are available to take communion to those who are homebound, as well as those who are hospitalized, or who are in a care facility. To be able to embrace those outside of the walls of our church, to be able to bring Communion to those who cannot be with us to share in the Eucharist, is truly part of God's grace.

To request a visit from a Communion Visitation Minister for you or a loved one, email: Please include your phone contact information in your email. Questions about this ministry? Contact Galen ( or 443-8084 x114).
