Children’s Ministry

“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. 

Children’s Liturgy of the Word:

We offer Children’s Liturgy at the 10:30am Sunday Mass, during term-time.  Our Children’s Liturgy exists to nurture the seeds of faith in young hearts and young minds.

We do this by:

  • Sharing the Word of God each week, putting Jesus and his teaching at the centre of all we do
  • Encouraging children to participate fully in our Liturgies, and to ask and answer questions
  • Celebrating all we have learnt in a season with carefully chosen worship songs.

You can find a collection of our current Worship Songs – with lyrics – here:

Children’s Activity Sheets:

Every week we produce a Children’s Activity Sheet that children can collect and take home after Mass.

The sheet includes a few words on the week’s Gospel to read and discuss, 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 from here to print off at home.
