CCD TEACHERS & AIDES ARE NEEDED (URGENT) – The CCD program, which begins the 2019-2020 year on September 8, desperately needs adult Catholics who would like to serve as teachers or substitutes. I ask each of you to pray about this ministry and listen to see if God is calling you. Any young adults who have received the Sacrament of Confirmation are welcome to join us as classroom aides. Not only is this a fun and fulfilling activity, but those volunteer hours look great on your college and scholarship applications. For more information, please contact Debbie Whitlock at (561) 966-1538.

We serve as a support group and provide a structure to assist with various Parish religious celebrations, social events and Parish service projects. Congratulations to the new slate of officers elected at the August 14 meeting: President: Brett Troskey; Vice President: John Hunt; Secretary: Deacon Andy Plucinski; Treasurer: Carlos Leon.
