Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)
What? A genuine celebration of the Liturgy of the Word, adapted for children
Who? Children ages K4-1st Grade
When? 10 AM Mass – Offered most every Sunday during the school year
Where? Dismissed from the Church to the Music Room
Why? Our goal is to prepare young children to attend regular Mass and to bring the Sunday Gospel message to them.
Tips for Parents:
1) Make sure your child knows where you are sitting during Mass so they can easily find you.
2) If it’s your child’s first time to attend CLOW, go with them! Sit with them and encourage them to participate.
3) If your child has a special need or consideration, communicate with your CLOW leaders and assistants. – Let us know what we can do to help your child learn and grow!
4) Volunteer! Join our team, and teach our children all about the Mass and the Good News of our Lord! Volunteers typically teach 1x a month or less. Interested? Contact (502) 239-5481
Kid’s Called to Serve (KCTS)
Kids Called to Serve invites children of the St. Gabriel parish in grades K-8 to come together and do something to improve their community. We believe that these short, kid-friendly acts of kindness will foster a love of philanthropy, build friendships, and be FUN!
We host about 8 events per year at various locations.
