New Family Mass

 

Sunday, 4th October, saw the launch of Our Lady of Victories Family Mass at 12.00. There was a great turnout, with children of all ages coming together to sing the Lord's praises and celebrate the International Day for Life!

 As part of this special liturgy, the children have their own Liturgy of the Word, where they leave the main church with volunteer parents to explore the themes in a way they can more easily understand - be that through artful expression for the younger ones, or to chat about God's word, for the older children.

 The children rejoin the main congregation from the Offertory onwards, where they engage fully with other family members and join with our new children's choir, who greatly enhance the liturgy. The choir, led by Claire & Paddy, are looking to build on numbers, so if you have a child who likes to sing (from 3rd Class up), then do please bring them along to join.

The regular 12.00 congregation gave hugely positive feedback about the liturgy and many commentated on the lively, yet prayerful atmosphere. Our hope is that this liturgy will grow stronger in numbers in the coming weeks and months, so do please come along and bring your children with you.

 In addition to Claire & Paddy, the parish expresses it gratitude to the volunteer parents who have undertaken to work with the children, so that they have a greater understanding of God's Word and, therefore, are more fully able to participate in the liturgy. Again, we could always do with more volunteers, so please don't be shy about joining this great little group!
