Leaders for Children’s Liturgy of the Word

After many years of serving in Children’s Liturgy of the Word, one of the leaders has decided to step back. We are looking for a team of two or three people who have a love of Scripture and would be willing to share that with the young people of our parish on Sunday morning during the Liturgy of the Word at the 10 a.m. Mass. This Ministry has a flexible schedule from September to June depending on various happenings in the Parish. A Background check and Call to Protect Training are necessary for these leaders. If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Maggie Stopka at the Parish Office 503-648-1998 Ext. 251.
