Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)

During the weekend Masses, the Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) ministers and assistants lead the children from the sanctuary to proclaim the Sunday readings and give a scripted homily designed for children ages 4-10. The children are then brought back to Mass during the collection. Our CLOW ministers are back in time for the second part of the Mass.

Our teachers use the Weekend Children’s Lectionary to focus on the readings with prayer, reflection, discussion questions, and activities so your children grow in their relationship with God.

For more information or to learn how you can become involved with this vibrant ministry as either a leader or assistant, please contact our Parish Office or call 301.663-0907.

We are in need of leaders and assistants. Ideally, we would like to have teams of four rotate duties on a monthly basis. Easy-to-follow lessons are sent electronically to all leaders every two months. Once a volunteer has completed the Child and Youth Protection Requirements for Volunteers with Substantial Contact, taken the CLOW training, and has ‘shadowed’ as many sessions as they feel needed, they can sign up for as many or as few weeks as they’d like. Teens are eligible to be assistants and can earn service hours for it.
