The children's homily will be offered during the 11:15 a.m. Mass on February 8 (the first full weekend of February), so we are not scheduled for that Sunday. We will also take Presidents' Day weekend off on February 15, returning to mark the beginning of Lent at the end of the month.

I will plan to make the next schedule around March 1. I will be in touch closer to that time to ask about your availability for March and April, excluding Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday of course.

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.

Do you know of anyone else who might be interested in being trained to exercise this ministry with our children once every couple of months during the 11:15 a.m. Mass? It would be good to have another volunteer or two, so please keep that in mind and invite someone to observe one of your sessions. Thanks for all you do for this ministry!

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.
