Children Readers at Mass

Children are encouraged to become involved in reading at our 9am Family Mass in the following ways;

  • Every Sunday 9am Mass children from Year 1 to Year 6 lead the Prayers of the Faithful
  • Every third Sunday of the month, and for important celebrations such as Easter, Pentecost and Christmas, children from Years 3 to 7 are  also invited to read the first reading, psalm, and second reading 

As proclaimer of the Word, you are an instrument of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit works through you and your voice to accomplish, in the Sacred Scriptures proclaimed aloud, the spiritual transformation of those listening.

Why do it?

If you love to read, this is a great way to share your gift with the community. 

If you join, we ask you to agree to;

  • Read and reflect on the reading at home with your parents in the week leading to the Mass
  • Pray and listen to the presence of God while you are reflecting
  • Learn the necessary skills to proclaim the Word of God
  • Agree to arrive by 8.40am to prepare on your assigned Sunday Mass
  • If you cannot attend, inform the coordinator at least 3 days before the event
