Weekly Updates for Oct 17: Living Rosary and Baptisms This Sunday, No CLOW Sunday, Save the Date for Advent Activities, and more.
No Children's Liturgy of the Word This Sunday
Because we will be celebrating Baptisms in the Mass this Sunday, there will be no Children’s Liturgy of the Word at the 9:00am Mass.
We look forward to celebrating the Sacrament with the families!
This week after the 9:00am Mass: PREK-5th grade children will go to their Atrium, their parents are invited to come up to the Parish Hall and participate in saying the Rosary. Because Baptisms will be celebrated in the Mass, formation programs will start a little late. Please remember not to leave your child in an unattended atrium! Thank you!
Middle School & High School youth group
will meet in the Parish Hall to lead the Rosary this Sunday after the 9:00am Mass. ALL parents, regardless of if you have a student in youth group, are invited to attend and take part in the Rosary. We will have a guide and a prayer for you to lead if you would like to participate. Thank you for your support!
Thank you to our many youth and adult altar servers for your dedication and service!
