This year the Celebrate the Child Mass will begin its journey around the Archdiocese by being celebrated on Sunday 3 July at St Paschal Baylon Catholic Primary School in Liverpool (Chelwood Avenue, L16 2LN), beginning at 2.30pm.
Many people come together to prepare this celebration of our faith with children, families and the church family at large. The theme of the 2016 Mass is 'Spread the Good News' and the day will start at 1pm when children will be able to join in activities to get ready for Mass. Archbishop Malcolm will be the main celebrant, with others priests invited to concelebrate.
After Mass there will be time to enjoy a picnic in the school grounds and the many games that are planned. Please help to make this a joyful witness to our faith and encourage families, catechists and the wider parish to participate. Bring along a parish banner if you have one.
It would be helpful to have confirmation of numbers when available.
