Children's Ministry

The mission of Children's Ministry at the Parish of Christ the King is to use our Catechetical Discipleship and involvement of parents to educate, mentor and encourage children in their faith and invoke the prayerful support of the community, so that those children can participate with their families in the enthusiastic and committed life of the Catholic Church. 


CHILDREN'S LITURGY OF THE WORD (CLOW) 
Children attending the 9:15 AM Sunday liturgy are led by volunteer catechists into the chapel for the Liturgy of the Word. CLOW utilizes Church approved, adapted readings appropriate for this age group. The volunteer catechists use the provided curriculum to lead children into a deeper understanding of God’s Word. While providing parents the opportunity to prayerfully enter into the Mass without being distracted by the needs of childcare. Children return to join their families at Mass during the offertory.  

For more information about CLOW or to find out how your child can be included in this program contact Erin Williamson at ewilliamson@christthekingcatholic.church.
