How do I get my child enrolled and involved?

By enrolling your child, you are simply signing up for the option to attend CLOW. Attendance is not required on a weekly basis; we simply need to collect certain basic information for safety reasons.

  1. Please register your child using the Microsoft Forms link here (https://forms.office.com/r/hq6JUa3ZBj) or click on the icon below.

  2. When you attend Mass, be sure to check in with the CLOW leader prior to the start of Mass.

How old does my child have to be?

We gladly welcome children between the ages of 4-8. However, if you have a 3 year-old and would like to attend with him/her that is absolutely fine. Older siblings are also welcome to attend to help out with younger siblings.

What happens during Mass and CLOW?

Immediately after the Homily, Monsignor will invite the children participating in CLOW to come forward and approach the Altar.  He will say a few words to the children and select one of them to help carry out the Gospel.  The children will then be led by our adult leaders and teen helpers into the choir room in the back of the church.  There they will participate in an age-appropriate lesson and activity for the duration of the Homily.  When the Homily is over, the children will be ushered back into the Sanctuary to rejoin their families at Mass.
