What exactly do they do? 

The children are called by the presider to gather with their leaders in front of the altar after opening prayer and are then sent forth. They process to  (location TBD)  which has been prepared for them with banners, a candle, and a lectern. After a brief Welcome and Opening Prayer, they listen to the First Reading proclaimed from the Children’s Lectionary. 

They are then led in singing a Psalm and Gospel Acclamation. Next, the Gospel is proclaimed by one of the adult leaders. An age-appropriate reflection on the Word is then shared by the leader through stories, discussions, or pictures.The children are then invited to share their own thoughts and ideas. Following this, the children profess a simple Act of Faith, pray their Prayers of Intercession, and finally return to their families at the time of the Presentation of the Gifts.
