We catechists are always thinking and planning ahead, right? I recently received a comment from Joyce asking for ideas for a children’s liturgy for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. I’m wondering if some of you have some suggestions!
Hi Joe… do you have any ideas for celebrating a Mass with children on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception? Looking for something new… we’ve done the Gospel drama for years, but hoping for something new… Know of any good videos we can possibly show at the homily? I like the above and am thinking if we can incorporate that into the Children’s Mass. As always… thanks for your blog…it’s awesome. Peace.
I’ve been thinking that it would be nice to go with a theme that focuses on God’s plan for us. God had a plan for us that involved Mary being the Mother of his only Son, Jesus. Mary still had a choice, but chose to “get with the plan” so-to-speak, even though she was not sure where it would lead. We need faith to seek out God’s plan for us and to follow it even though we are not always sure where it will lead us.
So, on the Feast of All Saints, what ideas can you offer to Joyce for a children’s liturgy on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception?
