Children's Liturgy of the Word
Join Father Marquard and members of the Good Shepherd parish and school staff each weekend for a virtual Children's Liturgy of the Word! In the description of each video you can find family discussion questions and activites to do together throughout the week to help you be mindful of the Sunday message throughout the rest of the week.
Please note, these videos are not intended to be a substitute for Sunday Mass. We strongly encourage parents to watch these videos alongside their children as they are a tool to help parents fully embrace the role as primary educators in the Faith for your children that was given to you at your child's baptism. It has been shown that children pay attention to what their parents pay attention to, so by watching with these videos together as a family parents can help instill a love for the Faith and Scripture in their child's hearts at a young age.
