Volunteers Needed for Children’s Liturgy of the Word

We are seeking adult and high-school aged volunteers to assist with our Children’s Liturgy of the Word ministry, offered during the school year at the Sunday 9 a.m. Mass for children ages 4 – 2nd grade.  After the opening prayer, the children are accompanied to the church basement, where they learn about the Gospel through fun activities. They return to the Mass prior to the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Preparation for the lesson requires a few minutes perusing the  teacher’s guide and weekly activity book. Please email Megan Scheiderer at megan.scheiderer@huschblackwell.com. Volunteers must complete Protecting God’s Children training.
