seminary education and lay ministry training. Please be generous

with a meaningful religious education program through the use of age-appropriate lessons, stories, songs, and crafts while their parents attend Mass. * Kinderchurch is offered during the 9 am Mass from September through May.
* We are looking for more adult catechists to help provide this wonderful
religious experience for the children of our parish - NO teaching experience
is needed! Please contact Laura Wade and Angela Banbury at [email protected]
with any questions. CHILDREN’S LITURGY OF THE WORD
CLOW is a parent participation ministry staffed solely by volunteers for 1st4th graders which takes place during Sunday 9am, 11am, and 5pm Masses.

the Homily so they can participate in Holy Communion. Please email [email protected]

put anything other than food in the cart. We are
asking that nothing be left on the floor around
the cart. If your food donation doesn’t fit in the cart OR you have
non-food items to donate, please drop them off on Monday morning to get a donation letter, or place the donation in the shed once
