As we gather to celebrate Mass in Saint Mungo’s the children are invited to celebrate the Word of God with all the children in their own way.
The children will spend time listening to the Gospel and then have an activity time which is spent reflecting on the Gospel and often involves them participating in colouring activities, games and role play suitable for children to assist them in their understanding of the Gospel.
The work the children produce and bring to the Altar is their work, their understanding of the Gospel of the day.
It is a time for them to enjoy and listen to the Gospel and a time for them to spend with other children from our parish.
This is a good way for your child to understand at any age and especially helpful if they are still to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation and First Communion.
The Children are invited to leave 12 O'Clock Mass after the opening prayer and join all the other children in hearing the Word of God. The Children return to Mass and bring the Gifts to the Altar along with their work
