Is your child or youth a lector or altar server? Has your child brought up the gifts and you were able to get a picture? If you have a photo of your child or youth serving or reading at Mass or bringing up the gifts, we would love to have their picture up on our children & youth bulletin board in the parish hall. We are so grateful to our children & youth for their service and participation at Mass. The children and youth help others to see how beautiful it is to be part of the family of the Church. We are happy to return all photos and certainly understand if you do not want to share. No names will be used with the pictures. Please send to
or give photo to Joy Weir. Thank you.
