Children at LSM

Children and families are very welcome at LSM, and greatly enrich its community. A Children’s Group meets in the Parish Centre during Mass on Sunday mornings. Children leave with the leaders for their own Liturgy of the Word and return at the sharing of the Peace, to rejoin their families for the rest of the Mass. Two children join the adult acolytes at the Altar for the Eucharistic prayer, and a rota of young Boat Bearers enables children to be closely involved with the worship.

The newly-restored Lady Chapel offers a peaceful place for parents to sit with infants during Mass on Sundays if needed.

The seasons of the liturgical year are often marked by special events for families, focused around a special Mass in which children participate in various ways. These occasions offer valuable opportunities for nurturing the faith in our community’s youngest members. Fr Robert is always happy to hear from those who are interested in exploring baptism or confirmation.

Many children at LSM enjoy singing as Choristers in the Parish Choir, and the Junior Choir is popular with younger children.
