The structure of the Children’s Liturgy of the Word is the same as
the Liturgy of the Word with the general assembly, hearing the same

 2. Invitation and Sending the Children forth
 3. Gather the Children
 4. First Reading
 5. Psalm and/or Psalm Response
 6. Gospel Acclamation

 9. Profession of Faith
10. General Intercessions – children are given the opportunity to
add their own intentions
11. Procession back to the assembly for the Liturgy of the
Eucharist and Concluding Rite

The series we use is called “Celebrate the Good News “by Maureen
