St Joseph's Children's Liturgy helpers needed

From Sunday 5th May, the Children’s Liturgy at 11am Mass at St. Joseph’s will be reducing to one group that will welcome all ages of children. We have taken this decision very reluctantly after 18 years, as we no longer have enough liturgists to run the two groups every week. We are in urgent need of new helpers for the rota so that we can continue to offer the Liturgy for children into the Summer and Autumn terms. There are lots of different ways you can help. It might be to look after one part of a session, do the room setting or tidy up or look after the resources cupboard. Any help at all, even just once a term, is most welcome. Please speak to one of the Liturgists or let the parish secretary know you could help in some way.
