Children’s Liturgy of the Word at Saint Anastasia resumes this Sunday, September 25, 2016, at the 10:00 AM Mass.
Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLW) is an age-appropriate Liturgy of the Word offered for all children at the 10:00 Mass.
Just before the Liturgy of the Word begins for the assembly, all children are invited to go with the weekly leaders from the church to the Religious Education Office (located down the hallway from the main Church).
During this special time, the volunteer teacher leads the children through prayers, songs and readings that are simplified for children.
The children learn about the same Scripture readings as the rest of the assembly. They are taught a simplified main message of the readings and are encouraged to share that message with their parents after Mass.
Children return to the assembly during the offertory procession. They are then invited to gather around the table of the Lord during the Liturgy of the Eucharist. At the sign of peace, children then return to their families.
There is a new Youth Group in the formation stages right now for our Parish. If you are in 8th grade this year or in High School already this should be of interest. It will be fun!
There will be more information available in the coming weeks, so please watch the bulletin each week for updates. We will be looking for volunteer teens, and some volunteer teen parents to help chaperone upcoming events.
The Blessing of The Animals will take place on Tuesday, October 4, 2016, at 4:00 PM. Please join us with your pets in the School Yard.
Join us on the North Lawn following each Mass on October 1st and 2nd.
The Padre Pio Prayer Group will meet this Friday evening, September 30th in the church at 7:30 pm, followed by Mass at 8:00 PM.
Padre Pio’s glove (a first class relic) will be with us that evening and all are invited to join us.
