For many children in our Catholic school or parish religious ed programs, the liturgies they celebrate with us are the primary experience of liturgy in their lives.
How we prepare for and celebrate is, therefore, extremely important. We want the children to have a positive experience, and to come to know and love the liturgy. We want them to understand the Rites and Symbols. And we want them to grow closer to Jesus and begin a life journey of real intimacy with him.
