If your parish or school already uses Children Celebrate! or Pflaum Gospel Weeklies, contact your parish to request that they share the videos with you.
Now available for download! We have been blessed by the gift of John Burland’s lovely Children’s Liturgy dismissal song, “Go Now and Listen to God’s Word.” This beautiful call-and-response song is available for download at www.Giamusic.com and sheet music is now available at bayardfaithresources.com!
One small way we can live out Christ’s call to love one another is by donating your hair! Miss Heidi recently donated her hair to Maggie’s Wigs 4 Kids, a non-profit organization that provides free wigs to children who have lost their hair due to medical conditions. Visit www.wigs4kids.org for more information!
Since March 2020, my husband Mark and I have been producing and sharing our free 30 minute Children’s Liturgy videos in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Continuing to produce our program has become increasingly challenging for us. Please support us by becoming a patron at https://www.patreon.com/kidsliturgy .
Thank you for sharing your children with us this weekend! May God bless you and your family, and may He keep you safe and well. Wishing your family many blessings as we rejoice in Christ’s Resurrection during the season of Easter! Happy Mother’s Day to all moms, grandmas, and godmothers!
This video was produced by Heidi and Mark Witte (parishioners of Christ the King Catholic Church in South Bend, Indiana).
