We encourage all the youth to join in.
We have a junior children’s liturgy during the Sunday 10.30am Mass at St John’s Church, Orewa, held in the hall, and a senior liturgy for children aged 11+ (school years 7-13) held in the meeting room.
We also have a children’s liturgy during the 8.30am Mass. The liturgy helps the children to develop in their faith at an age-appropriate level.
If any parents are interested in volunteering to present the children’s liturgy sessions on a rostered basis, please contact:
St John’s - Selina Limrick - 021 104 1309

Jesus said, "Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
