Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) has started back up for the Fall, but we are in need of adult volunteers to join a team. We are especially in need of volunteers for the 10:45 am Mass! Volunteers work together ONE Sunday a month (about 10 times a year), and all training and materials are provided. Musicians (vocals, piano, guitar) are also needed. We are also in very great need of Nursery Volunteers. Typically, parents who use the nursery are asked to help out one Sunday per month.
