We are looking for CD players for our religious ed classes to use on Wednesdays during class time. If you have a spare one laying around, would you be willing to donate it to the program? Please contact Kay Berg if you can help with that.

IN SEARCH OF: We are attempting to implement small group discussion during our youth group time with middle school and high school teens. Small group discussions work and are a very useful tool at these ages as a type of learning. It really just entails facilitating the discussion, not answering questions or coming up with topics, just keeping the group on track and making sure everyone has a voice. We are hoping for small groups of around 4-5 students. If you are willing to facilitate a small group, either in middle school or high school, please contact Kay Berg.

PRAYER WARRIORS NEEDED:
First, for our catechists – can you be a prayer partner with one of them? Pray for their ministry and for their lesson planning and whatever their personal intentions are? Maybe they would then in turn pray for you??

Secondly, for those youth who are in 2nd grade making their First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion - can you send them cards of support along this faith journey they are on this year and pray for them on a daily basis by name? OR for our Confirmation students – again, sending them notes of encouragement and praying for them daily by name. If any of these types of prayers seem interesting to you – please contact Kay Berg.

CHILDREN’S MASS BAGS are available for use for small children during Mass. They are located in the main entrance of church. Please take one to use! Our hope is that young children will find them interesting and fun! We ask that you put them back on the rack after Mass so someone can use them at the next Mass. They will be cleaned out weekly.
