Young people joint consent for Mass rotas

We are blessed in our parish by the active participation of the children and young people in our Masses and liturgies. The Parish Assembly takes care of providing and updating the rotas for the involvement of children and young people as:

  • Bearers of the Gifts at the Offertory
  • Readers of the Prayer of the Faithful, and
  • Readers of the Second Scripture Reading

These lists are in the process of being updated for the coming year to June 2019 and new names are being added. Parents are invited to enrol your child or young person for one of these ministries in our parish at one of the three churches. They will only be on the rota once every few weeks. Please download the form at this link and return it either to school or to the Parish Office.
