A celebration of the Liturgy of the Word
for children ages 4-7
Magnifikids is not catechism class nor is it childcare. It is a Liturgical celebration that is designed for children ages 4-7 years old. The priest presider will call on the children who will then be led to the Parish Center classrooms. A trained lay presider, using a Children’s Lectionary, will read the same scripture readings, share the homily and reflection of the readings. The lectionary used shortens the readings and uses language and vocabulary that is easily understood by children. The children will be encouraged to share their own understanding of the readings and how to relate it to their everyday lives.
Our purpose is for the Church to show special concern for baptized children who have yet to be fully initiated thru sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation. Also to ensure that the assembly’s children (ages 4-7) experience meaningful, inspirational, and spiritual celebrations of the Liturgy of the Word through careful, reflective planning, and preparation by our lay presiders.
