Children’s Liturgy Program At St. Stephens

Home > News & Events > Children’s Liturgy Program At St. Stephens


We would like to begin a Children’s Liturgy program here at St. Stephens. We hope to get it up and running by February 2022. Children’s Liturgy is a time just for children, where they hear and learn about the scriptures in words they understand. This special time allows children to learn more about God as well as to share their understanding of God’s Word.

Children’s Liturgy would take place each Sunday during the 10:30 am Mass. After the Opening Prayer, Father Corey would call the children forward and bless them. The children would then go downstairs with Children’s Liturgy Leaders. They would then return upstairs in time to celebrate the Liturgy of the Eucharist with their families.

All children from age 3 through 3rd grade are very welcome!

** Adult and Teen Leaders are needed to assist with presenting lessons and activities. All materials are pre-printed and provided weekly. Please contact Peg Orzel (607)-372-7036 or Sherry Dee (607)- 759-1876 if you are willing to help. Either of us would be happy to show and teach volunteer Leaders about the readings and lessons before the start of the Liturgies. Children’s Liturgies are scheduled on a rotating basis. This allows everyone to join the regular liturgies as often as possible.
