Please accept my apologies for the lateness of this schedule. Thanks to Rose for taking May 3, and Gerry for this coming weekend. Please note that this coming Sunday is the Solemnity of the Ascension, not the 7th Sunday of Easter. Cardinal McCarrick moved the Ascension from Thursday to Sunday in the Archdiocese of Washington a number of years ago. I hope that the planning workbook makes provision for that!

After June 28, we will be on hiatus for the months of July and August. I will plan to make the next schedule around September 1. I will be in touch closer to that time to ask about your availability for September and October, excluding Labor Day and the dates of the Children’s Mass during those months.

Anna Hall continues to apprentice on this schedule. Last time around, she was scheduled to work with Georgana and Rose and now I have her scheduled to work with Gerry and the Cardiles. Anna hopes to take a turn of her own in the fall.

Step-by-Step handouts will once again be in the supply cabinet of the St. Clare Room in the Gathering Space on most if not all Sundays for you to hand out during Children’s Liturgy. Any leftovers can be placed on the table in the Gathering Space so that children who did not attend Children’s Liturgy also can take them home.

Please notify me of any corrections, alternate phone #s or email addresses related to the information listed above. Newcomers to this ministry like Anna are always welcome, and summer is a good time to recruit, complete VIRTUS training, etc. Please let me know if you have anyone new in mind.

Web Resources in addition to the resource book: - You can find all the Sunday readings here. - Word Sunday is a resource that includes a children’s story relating to the Gospel of the day.
