Liverpool to celebrate the gift of children

 This coming Sunday, 24 June, up to 1,000 people from parishes across the Archdiocese of Liverpool will gather with their families and parishioners at 2pm in the Floral Hall, Southport, for a special children's Mass with the theme: 'Celebrate the Child'. This, the fourth such annual celebration organised by the Archdiocesan Child Protection Team, is to be celebrated by the Most Reverend Patrick Kelly, Archbishop of Liverpool, who said: " We may rejoice and be encouraged by the Mass at Southport's Floral Hall, bringing together children from across the Archdiocese. In the name of thousands I thank everyone involved in ensuring that children are safe from harm and will be blest, enriched and know peace and joy." Deacon Des Bill, Child Protection Coordinator for the Archdiocese he said: "the event will enable the people of the Archdiocese to come together to rejoice in the gift of our children, their place with us in the Church, and all the good work that goes on to support and encourage them in our parishes.'" Taking part in the music of the Mass will be parishioners from St Anne's, Ormskirk, and other parts of the liturgy, which have been prepared with children in mind, will be led by children from the parishes throughout the Archdiocese.
