Family Mass

The Family Mass Group works together to create an inclusive and welcoming experience at the 10.30 Mass each Sunday. The people who appreciate this experience most are those who value andCros-Araild cherish the efforts of children and teenagers (and their families). We celebrate a Mass that nourishes their faith and love of God in a way suited to them. It treasures family life in all its forms. 

There is a focus on praying through words, art, music and actions. All those who attend Mass are welcome to join in the singing, and children especially are invited to colour their pictures, Bethlehem_Girl_Guidesread child friendly books and come up to the altar to join in the actions for the Our Father and the final hymn.  Children’s movement and noise during the Mass is part of their prayer and we value that contribution; as the Lord said, ‘let the little children come unto me’.   

If you, as a child, teen or adult, would like to say a prayer, do a reading, sing in the choir, serve at Mass, join the musicians or drama group or join the group that plans these activities, we extend a welcoming hand to you.

If you are interested in finding out more, please contact any of the Family Mass Group after the 10.30 Mass. We are just like you – interested in nourishing a life of faith for our families in a challenging environment and culture.

The Family Mass runs from September to June and families (both parents and children) are invited to participate fully in the celebration of the Eucharist.

We especially invite parents/adults with a musical talent, playing guitar or piano/organ to become part of the organising group.Shofar

One Parent's experience of attending the Family Mass:

"The family Mass has a relaxed open atmosphere and has been a perfect place to introduce our children to Mass. There is a great sense of community and belonging. The children love the opportunity to participate."
