Children's Liturgy of the Word is a Ministry offered to the families of St Paul the Apostle Parish. This ministry has become so popular that we are hosting over 40 children each week and we are offering Children's Liturgy at both the Saturday 4:30 PM and Sunday 11AM Mass times.


CLOW is prepared for children ages 3-6 years old that have some school or group learning experience. Please send your children to CLOW if they show interest, can follow simple directions, have the ability to sit still and pay attention to a speaker for 10 minutes and can work independently for 15 minutes. Parents, all children are different, please use care in deciding whether your child(ren) is old enough for CLOW.


CLOW "Helpers" must be in at least 5th grade. CLOW helpers need to be able to work independently to hand out materials, take attendance, take small children to the restroom, work with children needing one on one attention and to supervise general safety and participation in the room.
