Liturgy of the Word for Children

During most Sundays during the school year the Cathedral of Saint Raymond offers Children’s Liturgy of the Word during the 9:00 am Sunday Mass. 

Just prior to the first reading, all children ages four to eight are invited to come forward by the priest. They will be led to the Sacristy by a Children’s Liturgy of the Word Minister who will help them discover rich treasures in the readings and the gospel. 

This is a wonderful way for young children to begin a lifetime of faith formation.

If you are interested in becoming a minister for the Children’s Liturgy of the Word, please contact Christine Pershey at 815-722-6653 ext. 215 or









Each Children's Liturgy of the Word volunteer minister helps one weekend a month and two volunteers always work together with the Children.
A love of children is the gift needed to help serve this rewarding ministry.
