Children’s Liturgy of the Word Starting September 17th, 2023

Children’s Liturgy of the Word is starting on Sunday, September 17th and will continue through the school year. During the 11:30am Mass, children between the ages of 4 and 7 will be dismissed to the Social Hall to hear the Word of God proclaimed specifically to them and at their level. This is a great way to introduce your young children to Bible stories and to get them participating at Mass.

We Need More Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist

Our Lady of Refuge Parish thanks you for stepping up and making it possible to begin again the reception of the Precious Blood. We will be starting September 9th . There will be two Extraordinary Ministers available on either side of the center aisle. We still need more Extraordinary Ministers. Please see Lisa Marie following any of our Masses to be trained and placed on our teams. Ave, and again many thanks!!

This group works behind the scene to support the celebration, and we thank them. We are always looking for new team members and have 2-target areas for growth.

Eucharistic Ministers: At Communion, to bring back the Precious Blood, we need 7-Eucharistic Ministers per Mass. Please contact Stephanie if interested.

Ushers: We need a lead for each Mass and have a target of 8 per Mass. Please contact Oscar to help.

If you have any questions, contact Dan Whalen.
