Children’s Liturgy

Our next Children’s Mass will on Sunday 26 November 2017. It will be followed by the annual BBQ and FAIR of the parish of South Yarra.

Children are welcome at all our Masses in our Churches.

Colouring activities and toys for children are provided in the foyer at the rear of St Joseph’s Church where parents can sit with their children and participate in the Mass.

During school terms, we have Children’s Liturgy on the first and third Sunday of each month for children of kindergarten and primary school age.

Led by a parent, the children have a session of approximately 20 minutes on the Gospel story with activities suitable for their age. They come back to Mass for the procession of the gifts. These sessions are in the adjacent Parish Centre. A parent is welcome to accompany their child.

We also have two children Masses per term. Children are invited to read, sing in the choir, and carry the cross, the book of the gospel, the Bread and Wine…

Children meet 2 to 3 times prior to the children’s Mass to prepare, usually on Wednesdays.

Please contact the parish centre for more details.
