Religious Education Ministry
All of our catechetical programs are in need of adults who are willing to share the faith and the gift of teaching with our children. Catechists receive training provided by the Archdiocese and meet each semester for ongoing formation. Junior Catechists, Room Parents, Teen Helpers, Receptionists, Office Help and Parking Lot Patrol Parents are needed each year. Registration begins in March and ends July 31st.
School of Religion parents meet October-April to plan and implement activities for parents and children.
Queen of All Saints Parent Association meets on the first Monday of the month. RE parents representing the School of Religion fully participate in QASPA planning parish family activities like the Family Masses and receptions, parent night speakers, and parent-child activities.
Children's Liturgy of the Word
Children from Junior Kindergarten through 4th grade are invited to attend their own Children's Liturgy of the Word in the Mothers Chapel back room during the 9:30 and 11:00 am Sunday Masses. The children begin the Mass with their parents and are blessed and sent to share the Readings, Gospel and reflections geared to their age group. The children return to their parents after the Prayers of the Faithful for the rest of the Mass.
Each VBC has a wonderful group of young volunteers who are obtaining service hours for their high school or Confirmation service requirements. They join the Teen Team Camp Staff of college and high school students who share their gifts of faith, hope and love with the campers each year. The Teen Team receives supervision, training and spiritual formation during the week prior to the camp. Young adults and adults fill the roles of Camp Leaders. They will be trained separately from our teen and junior high volunteers. Teens interested in this ministry should contact Mrs. Aline Reynolds at the beginning of the summer.
