If you or someone you know would be interested in volunteering as a classroom aide in our Religious Education Program, we are still in need of a couple aides on Wednesday afternoons (4:45-6:00pm). It is a great way to participate in the parish's Stewardship Program. So think about it yourself, or ask an older sibling, grandparent, neighbor, etc. Contact, Tara Penza at
