CCD TEACHERS & AIDES NEEDED – The CCD program always welcomes 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.
