Two workshops on celebrating the Mass with children will be offered in May and sponsored by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Office for Divine Worship.
Both workshops will be held on the 13th floor of the Archdiocesan Pastoral Center, 222 North 17th Street in Philadelphia. Father Gerald Dennis Gill and Jean Madden will be the presenters.
“Children’s Liturgy of the Word” on Wednesday, May 13 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. will provide answers for: What is the children’s liturgy? Why do we offer it? When should it be celebrated? How should it be celebrated? Where should it be celebrated? Who should participate in it?
“The Celebration of the Liturgy and Children” will be Wednesday, May 20 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Topics will include: Catechesis and preparation; sacramental and liturgical participation; liturgical rites; liturgical music; guidance for the Universal Prayer; liturgical celebrations apart from Mass; and devotions.
The workshops are open to all priests, deacons, principals, directors/coordinators of religious education, teachers, catechists, youth ministers and liturgical music directors.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
