There are two important ways that children can be involved in our parish liturgy:
Children's Liturgy of the Word is held during both the first part of the 8.15am and the 10.15am Mass at Lindfield and the 9:15am Mass at Killara during school term.
At the beginning of Mass the celebrant calls the children forward and they go with their Liturgy leaders in the parish meeting room to learn about the readings of the day in an easily understood way. Children engage in discussion, craft and music to bring alive the meaning of the liturgy for them. Children rejoin their family at the time of the Dedication of the Gifts.
All children aged from two onwards are welcome. If you would like to become engaged in this worthwhile Ministry.

Children's Mass Our Children's Masses are celebrated on the First Sunday of the Month at Killara at the 9:15am Mass, and on the Second Sunday of the month at Lindfield at the 10:15am Mass. At these Masses the children take on many of the active roles: as Readers, readers of the Prayers of the Faitful, carrying forward the gifts of bread and wine, etc. The children are also invoited to gather around the altar for the Eucharistic Prayer.
As we are one parish you are very welcome to move between our two churches and come to both these children's celebrations each month.
After each of these Masses there is morning tea so that adults and children can relax and continue the celebration.

Please note that there will be no Children's Mass at Killara on the first Sunday in October 2013 since that weekend falls in school holidays and is a long weekend also.
