Easter Egg Magic - The Empty Tomb
Children’s Liturgy of the Word (has been suspended) takes place during the 10:30 A.M. Sunday Mass from September through May and once a month during the summer. The program is generally intended for children ages 4-7 (or through 2nd grade until First Communion). NO registration is needed. The children are dismissed before the first reading to Visitation Hall and return during the Preparation of the Gifts. The structured program consists of readings, songs, and activities to help the children more fully participate in the Liturgy of the Word at an age appropriate level. Please call Cindy McKinley (502)425-3940 with any questions, or to volunteer for this valuable ministry.
We hope to offer CLW in August!!
During this time when Children’s Liturgy of the Word has been suspended, please feel free to use/print these resources for your family.
Fourth Sunday of Easter – April 25
The Holy Gospel According to John 10:11-18
Fourth Sunday of Easter!
Preparation for Sunday Scripture Readings
- In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus says he is like a shepherd who wants to care for his sheep because he loves them. Because he loves the sheep, the Good Shepherd will do anything to keep them safe.
- Read aloud this Sunday’s Gospel, John 10:11–18.
- Say: Jesus is really saying that he loves us so much that he did all he did while on earth—not because he had to, but because he wanted to. Everything he did, he did out of love for us.
- Conclude in prayer, asking God to help us want to serve others as Jesus did. Pray together the Lord’s Prayer
