Children’s Liturgy Program

Volunteers Needed for both Groups

 

Due to the retirement of some of our volunteer teachers and helpers from last year, the Children’s Liturgy Program (at the Sunday 10 am Mass) is looking for a few new volunteers to help us with our program.

 

Our Children’s Program for the younger children, ages 3-6, currently has a cycle of 4 teachers who plan and conduct the sessions, together with our student helpers and one or two parents who stay with their children sometimes.  We are appealing for one more parishioner to step forward to join us as a teacher for this group, so that we can expand the rotation to 5 teachers and give some of our regular volunteers a bit of a break when they need it.  Anyone volunteering for this position can observe and assist with our current teachers until he or she feels comfortable leading the sessions.

           

            Our Children’s Program for the older children, ages 7-11, needs one or two adult volunteers to act as a helper at our Sunday sessions, approximately once every 4 week. 

This does not require any advance preparation,

it simply involves being able to help during the session, and assist with the cleanup afterwards.

 

            Please contact the parish office or Tom Broadhurst if you are interested responding to either of these requests (the Archdiocese of Toronto does require a volunteer screening for those working with children – this screening process is conducted by the parish).
