Liturgy of Light for Children

In a special, abbreviated, mock version of the Easter Vigil service, designed specially for children, we will celebrate the light of the risen Christ, while reflecting on the Liturgy of Light that will be celebrated by the whole church later that same Saturday evening.

This presentation was developed as part of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (Defined on the CGS website as, “an approach to the religious formation of children [that] is rooted in the Bible, the liturgy of the church, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori.”). They are suitable for children up to about age 10, although older siblings are welcome, too.
