Instructors & Aides Needed for Religious Education Program
The 6th Grade is in need of a RE Teacher and a few volunteers to help out with teaching our youth about our Faith. (Virtus Train-ing required)

Please Consider Becoming A lector and/or Eucharistic Minister
Our Parish is looking for volunteers to assist at Mass and throughout our Parish.

By devoting your time and talent as lectors and Eucharistic Ministers you could help make our liturgies be truly life–giving celebrations as it could and should be.

It's your decision at which Mass you'll be able to help and usually your help is only needed once each month. Be available to meet with homebound parishioners as needed.

If you're interested please contact the rectory and ask to see our
"Time and Talent" Brochure.
