WE NEED ALTAR SERVERS: Our Parish needs our youth to consider becoming Altar Servers to help serve at the LORD'S TABLE! Any one who  has made their 1st Communion is eligible to become a server. In the past we have had 9 plus teams to serve at the Lord's Table but in recent years this has declined to just 4 1/2 teams. The decline is based on those who have found a job, graduated from high school, moved away or scheduling conflicts. Deacon John Hendricks will now oversee the Altar Servers and with the help of Mrs. Koreen Scalfaro; handle the scheduling.  We are taking a different approach and offering everyone a preference to the Mass they would like to be scheduled for. So wont you consider participating at the Lord's Table!!! If you are interested you can contact the Faith Formation Office at 683-2746 ext 208. Thank you and God Bless
