Year of Prayer for New Pentecost

J-Ro Music & Scripture

Do you know someone aged 8-15 who wants to perform on stage and share God’s message? At J-Ro Music Workshops we will incorporate the gospel teachings into Christian and secular music. We will focus on music by Christian artists such as Chris Tomlin & Casting Crowns, popular artists such as Jason Mraz & Journey, and we will even include some musical theatre. Students will greatly improve their playing, improvising, and performing skills while making friends, having fun, and learning their faith. We are looking for: Singers, Guitarists, Bass Players, Drummers, and Keyboardists, and more. You will apply what you learn and put on a concert for parents and family on the final day of the program! The show starts at 1:00 pm on June 29.

  • Dates: March 9 – June 29, Performance June 29 @ 1pm
  • Time: 2 Sundays/month 11:30am-1pm or 1:15-3:15pm – visit website calendar or contact instructor Josh Ross by E-Mail for a full list of dates and times

Intramural Basketball

Our intramural basketball program is tentatively scheduled to begin on Saturday, March 1. All boys and girls in grades 1-4 are welcome to participate in this co-ed basketball program. This program spans approximately 8-10 sessions and the cost is $40.00 per child.  Please see The Good News bulletin for more details and registration.

 

Ushers Needed

We are looking for another 15 to 20 people to become ushers.  We are particularly short at the 4:00 pm Saturday and 12:15 pm Sunday masses.  We have some current ushers that are having medical issues and several that travel south during the winter months.  Without an adequate number of ushers to draw from, it becomes burdensome for those who do serve in this ministry.  At worst, with too few ushers at a given mass, we may miss someone who needs the Body of Christ brought to them because they cannot come forward during Communion.   And if there are only two or three ushers to take up the entire collection, they may not get the collection gathered and into the safe in time to return for the start of the Eucharistic Prayer.  Please consider joining this ministry.  Call me directly or send me an e-mail note, and I will add you to our ranks.  Our responsibilities are simple, and I will gladly train you.  Many hands make light work!

Thanks again,
