SUGGESTED SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES
CHILDREN'S LITURGY OF THE WORD HELPERS
Our Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) is in need of extra hands during the 9:00 AM Mass each week on the following dates. Your responsibility will be to meet the children at the altar after the Gospel reading and escort them to the choir room, along with the regular adult leaders. You will help them with their activity during that time, providing extra hands when needed, and just interact with the children. After the homily is over, you will return to the church where you can finish Mass. Sign-Up-Genius located here: CLOW HELPERS
Volunteering your time in the nursery is a wonderful way to help out in the parish and is also a great way to get service hours. Please consider donating your time as it is very much appreciated. The youngest parishioners LOVE when you come to play with them. Sign up as much or as little as you are able to. 7th and 8th graders welcome. For more information, contact Sheila Shearin at email@example.com.
FAITH FORMATION CLASSROOM HELPERS
Many of our catechists need assistance in the younger grades with classroom activities, projects, and faith-based lessons. If you enjoy working with children, this job is for you! Sign up as much or as little as you are able to. 7th and 8th graders welcome. More information, contact Wendy Barber at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SUGGESTED SPIRITUAL OPPORTUNITIES
ADORATION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT
Would you like to deepen your relationship with Jesus and spend some time with him in prayer once a month? Are you trying to find ways to “slow down” this year and listen more? Do you need spiritual hours for Confirmation class? Consider taking a shift for Eucharistic Adoration once a month! All are welcome. No sign-up is needed.

PRAISE & WORSHIP ADORATION

PRAY THE ROSARY
Pick up your Rosary and pray! Not sure how? Click HERE for a handy instruction sheet. Also, every month the Knights of Columbus lead the Rosary in the Chapel after one of our 9 am Masses. Check the monthly parish newsletter or our parish bulletin or calendar for details about the monthly date and time.
PRAY THE DIVINE MERCY CHAPLET
Another type of prayer using your Rosary is the Divine Mercy Chaplet. Never heard of it? Click HERE for a handy instruction sheet. The message of The Divine Mercy is simple: God loves us – all of us. He wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others. Thus, all will come to share His joy.

We have a whole library of books and DVDs that are suitable for youth, teens, and families - including entire series of Scripture studies. Find one that suits you and spend some time at home with your family or friends learning more about something that interests you and will help you walk in the light of Christ!
