Changes to Children’s Liturgy
We have decided to make some changes to the structure of the Children’s Liturgy. From now on, Children’s Liturgy will take place on the 1st Sunday of each month at the 9am Mass. On all other Sundays of the month, Fr. John will call the children up at the end of the Mass and hand out children's bulletins which can be taken home.
We are appealing for more volunteers for our Children's Liturgy ministry. This is an essential ministry that brings the word of God to the young children of our parish.Volunteers must have a current blue card. Blue card forms are available on the table in the foyer of the Worship Centre. For more information, please contact Rhiannon
