Volunteers Needed for Children’s Liturgy

We are looking for adult and high-school aged volunteers to assist with our Children’s Liturgy of the Word ministry. This ministry is offered during the school year at the Sunday 9 a.m. Mass for children ages 4 – 2nd grade. After the opening prayer, the weekly teacher and helper accompany the children to the church basement, where they learn about the Gospel as they pray, share, listen, sing, and color in activity books. They return to the Mass prior to the Liturgy of the Eucharistic. Preparation for the lesson requires a few minutes perusing the teacher’s guide and weekly activity book. To get involved, please email Megan Scheiderer. Volunteers must complete the Protecting God’s Children workshop and a background check.

Packet Day is Tuesday, Aug. 7

School families, please join us any time between 2 and 6 pm next Tuesday in St. Peter’s Gym to pick up your school packet. It will include your school calendar/handbook highlights, homeroom assignments, August hot lunch menu, and logistics for the first day and school year. You may also purchase used uniforms, put money on lunch accounts, register for extended care, sign up for volunteer opportunities, and learn more about using Sycamore. If you can’t make packet day, you may drop by the school office after Aug. 7 to pick up your packet.
