“See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.”Matthew 18:10
Families and children are always made welcome at St Marie’s Cathedral, and we have a thriving Children’s Ministry as a result.
We provide a weekly Children’s Liturgy of the Word to help children enjoy the experience of Church, and to help them learn more about Jesus and God, our Heavenly Father, through a more age-appropriate Liturgy. And we are delighted to be able to meet again in person!
From 3rd October 2021, Children’s Liturgy will be once again available at the 10:30am Mass on Sundays; please check the weekly Newsletter for further details.
But if you cannot make that Mass, the Mark Ten Mission do a wonderful online Children’s Liturgy each week during term-time. You can find the latest edition below:
Children’s Activity Sheets:
Every week we produce a Children’s Activity Sheet that children can read and use during Mass. The sheet includes a few words on the week’s Gospel, a Children’s Prayer, a couple of Gospel-related activities (such as a Word Search and a Cross Word Puzzle), and a Colouring section for our younger parishioners. Copies are available at the back of the Cathedral, or you can download it at home.
Some of Our Sing-Along Hymn:
Each week, we sing, or recommend, a child-friendly hymn to celebrate all that we have learnt from the Gospel. Hymns are uplifting – something we all benefit from, especially during difficult times. They are also a form of prayer. You can find this month’s selection of sing-along hymns here:
