NEEDED FOR NORTH HARBOUR PARISH
I have really enjoyed co-ordinating and being involved with children’s liturgy for many years now. I remember starting children’s liturgy when my first daughter, Sarah was in Kindergarten at St Kieran’s school and Sarah is now 23 years old so we’re looking at over 18 years. I can’t even remember when I took on the role as co-ordinator but it probably was a couple of years after starting as a volunteer. I can truly say that Children’s Liturgy together with being a Catechist is the most satisfying and rewarding ministries that I have been a part of. However, I feel that it is time for me to step down as co-ordinator and a volunteer of children’s liturgy and for someone else to take on this very satisfying and rewarding role.
I am looking for someone to take on this role beginning in Term 4 of this year, Monday, 15 October. You may even wish to share this role with a friend or two.
So you may ask what’s involved in being co-ordinator of children’s liturgy? Here are some points:
- At the beginning of the year a roster for St Cecilia’s and St Kieran’s is put together.
- Each week on Mondays or Tuesdays resources (readings, prayers of the faithful and activity sheets) are put together and delivered to the persons who are rostered on for that week. Most of the resources are already photocopied and filed in folders and it’s only the occasional week that you need to photocopy from scratch.
You liaise with the volunteers of both St Cecilia’s and St Kieran’s churches.
If you think this is something you can take on or would simply like more information about what is involved in being a co-ordinator, please feel free to call me anytime and I would be more than happy to have a chat and meet up with you.
