GIFT Lenten Project: Operation Rice Bowl
This Lent, our GIFT families will have the opportunity to pray, fast, learn and give through participating in Catholic Relief Services’ Operation Rice Bowl. Rice bowl “banks” will be distributed to the children during GIFT classes. Please be on the lookout for the rice bowls and use this opportunity to help our children learn about the concept of sacrificial giving and helping those less fortunate.

Maker Fun Factory – Created by God, built for a purpose
Send your kids on for some Faith Building Fun!
Imagine a world where curious kids become hands-on inventors who discover they’re lovingly crafted by God. Maker Fun Factory VBS is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch and even taste! Creative crafts, team-building games, co Bible songs, and tasty treats are a few of the activities that help faith flow into real life. Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life – something we call God Sightings!
We want all the kids to participate and to bring their friends. We will need lots of adult help! Signup sheets for adult crew leaders, MS and HS crew helpers, and for participants ages 3 years old (potty trained) through 5th grade (fall 2017) are in the bins outside Claire Bissell’s office. Mark your calendars and sign up today!
Children’s Liturgy of the Word continues at the 11 am Mass. This ministry is designed to help young children to learn to listen, reflect and respond to God’s Word. To volunteer to help with this ministry, contact Claire Bissell.
If you are expecting or if your baby has already been born and you are seeking baptism for your child, please call Cathy Cobb in the parish office to set up an appointment for a baptismal preparation session.
