Liturgy


Our parish gathers together to worship God, listen to the Scriptures, and celebrate the sacraments.  As we do so, we build up “table fellowship” that binds us together.  As a community of faith we also understand our obligations to our neighbors and seek to serve their needs as we would serve Christ.  We enjoy the company of other parishioners and meet in various activities to share our lives and the joy of Christian life. Participation in the life of our parish is important to all of us.  It is where we continue to grow as a parish.

Participation in Sunday Mass is at the core of our identity as Catholics.  Our parish takes that vision seriously and we attempt to schedule weekend Masses to assist all parishioners in making Mass a priority.

Children's Liturgy of the Word

At the 10:00am Mass each Sunday, preschool and first grade children are invited to participate in a special Children’s Liturgy of the Word. Younger children may attend if accompanied by an adult (or with an older sibling). The Children’s Liturgy of the Word begins with singing a simple Bible song or reciting a poem or prayer after which the Gospel reading is proclaimed from the Children’s Lectionary.  An adult leader discusses with the children the basic meaning of the Gospel and explains in simple terms its foundation to our Catholic faith. Intercessory prayers and the Creed follow and if time permits a closing song precedes dismissal back to the general congregation (usually during the offertory collection).  Adults are welcome to assist with this ministry. High school students are welcome to assist as junior helpers to assist the younger children.  For more information, please please contact parish@saintkilian.org.
