TEACHERS NEEDED A teachers’ meeting will be held next Sunday after the 10:15 service. Anyone interested in teaching is asked to attend this meeting. A new curriculum has been chosen and we will discuss the program and the schedule. If you are able to give one Sunday a month to this ministry, you will find it very rewarding and fulfilling.

ATTENTION ALL SERVERS AND CRUCIFERS There will be a training meeting after the 10:15 service next Sunday. If you are interested in becoming an acolyte, then please contact Father Layden. This is a great ministry to help praise the Lord.

Thus, the meeting for the 8:00 worshippers will be at 9:15 a.m., and a meeting for those who worship at 10:15 will be at 11:30 a.m. If you are already a LEM or Lector, or if you are interested in this amazing ministry, please join us.
NURSERY ATTENDANTS NEEDED We are looking for 8-10 volunteers to help us staff the nursery this year. If you love kids and would be able to volunteer an hour at least once a month, please see Kelli MacDonald. Teenagers, grandparents, mothers and fathers could all make our nursery at Saint Alban’s a great place for young children to stay during the 10:15 service. We would like to staff two people each Sunday. If you are looking for a way to serve and be involved, this could be what you are looking for.
