                               Adult Volunteers Needed

Did you know that many parents who are interested in becoming Catholic are able to participate in the weekly Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) sessions because parishioners volunteer to help with childcare? We are in need of 12 adult volunteers to commit to helping on just 5-6 Tuesday evenings during the school year from 6:45 – 8:45 p.m. Will you be one of the 12 to serve in Jesus’ name for the good of His precious sons and daughters? This is a wonderful way to help others as they learn about our Catholic faith. Please prayerfully consider contacting Pastoral Associate Susan Bellotti at sbellotti@stpacc.org (or 882-2109) or our RCIA Childcare Coordinator, Geae Dutson at geaedutson@yahoo.com. Why not be one of the first to reply and help us with this need? Thank you!
