Celebrating the Liturgy of the Word with Children

What should be done when preparing a liturgy for children? How do we involve them in the celebration? What sort of formation is needed for those who plan and lead these celebrations?

To help answer such questions, the Publications Service of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) has released Celebrating the Liturgy of the Word with Children. This helpful resource provides practical assistance to all involved in the important ministry of planning and leading liturgies where children are present.

Written by recognized experts under the authority of the CCCB Episcopal Commission for Liturgy and the direction of the National Liturgy Office, Celebrating the Liturgy of the Word with Children will prove useful for pastors, parish teams, teachers, catechists, parents, lay presiders and lectors. This guide will help organizers in choosing both music and texts, and inspire questions for reflection.

Also included in the resources are specific suggestions for facilitating the participation of children in the liturgy of the Eucharist within larger assemblies, and a useful glossary with clear explanations of liturgical terms.

Celebrating the Liturgy of the Word with Children may be ordered at a cost of $14.95 (plus shipping and tax) through CCCB Publications at 1-800-769-1147, by fax at 1-613-241-5090, e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

The colours of the web site represent the official heraldic insignia of Bishops. The green corresponds to the galero (ecclesiastical hat) and six tassels on each side that make up the crest and supporters of the coat of arms of each Bishop while the gold represents the processional cross.
