Family Mass Collection Volunteers Needed

Family Mass_AltarWe are looking for a few adults who usually attend the Family Mass to help oversee the collection during this Mass. It is a very easy volunteer position (as well as very important!) that involves making sure there are enough age appropriate children volunteers, guiding the children to the right pews, and collecting the money back from the children. You do not need to be at the Mass each week – we just need to have enough adults “on the lookout” during collection time to make sure there are enough adults overseeing the process. If you are interested in helping out please email Chrissy Cassa or come on back during collection time – and feel free to bring your child/ren with you!!
