This booklet is a primer for those who serve as prayer leaders of children’s Liturgy of the Word. Offering valuable insight into the role that children’s Liturgy of the Word plays in child development, this guide explains how prayer leaders can best meet the unique developmental needs of children. This booklet is an essential resource for parish training programs and ongoing formation for both new and experienced prayer leaders. This booklet provides an understanding of the origins and practice of this liturgy; an overview of the order of service and the role of the prayer leader; practical suggestions for leading prayer, navigating through the Lectionary, crafting a reflection and the Prayer of the Faithful, and preparing the liturgical environment; ways to help children pray, understand the Scriptures, and participate the liturgy; answers to frequently asked questions, and definitions for liturgical terms.

"How to Lead Children’s Liturgy of the Word is a detailed guide and excellent resource for prayer leaders and catechists both new to this ministry and those who have been serving for years. This guide gives a great explanation about the purpose and history of [this ritual].

—Trica Barron
Catechist and Prayer Leader

“This excellent pastoral and practical resource is a must have for anyone leading the children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLW) in a parish. It thoroughly treats the theological and liturgical background for CLW while also offering a wide spectrum of resources for the ministers involved.”

—Christopher Ferraro,
Music Director,
Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, Lindenhurst, NY


"Pat Fosarelli, Donna Eschenauer, and Paul Turner have given the Church a wonderful resource. How to Lead Children’s Liturgy of the Word is that rare resource that combines good, practical insights and solid, accessible theology. With its focus on liturgical prayer, the book provides a solid liturgical theology as a basis for the children’s Liturgy of the Word, describing good ritual practice and, at times, illustrating what should not be done. This is an invaluable resource for parishes not only in its presentation of the children’s Liturgy of the Word, but also as it strengthens parishioners’ understanding of the active and grace-filled presence of God’s Word in the liturgy."

—Msgr. Joseph DeGrocco
