The Children’s Mass takes place on the first Sunday of every month at the usual 11am mass. The mass is partly led by the children of the parish, in particular the young members of the girl guides who are based in the Dominican itself.
The girl guides meet each week and alongside their normal duties they prepare for the monthly Children’s Mass by writing the bidding prayers and developing their own interpretations of the Word of God. The girls then share these interpretations with the congregation before each reading. Along with the Junior Choir singing at this mass the girls also bring forward the gifts for the offertory procession.
