I am excited to announce that our school students have been invited to actively participate in our parish's celebration of Sunday Mass on a monthly basis! All students of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School, and their families, are encouraged to attend and serve in ministry at the 12:00 noon Mass on the second Sunday of each month, beginning January 13, 2019. This is a unique opportunity for our students to be present and visible to the wider parish community, and to be witnesses of the value of Catholic education.
All students who attend the monthly Mass are encouraged to wear their school uniforms. Students are invited to actively participate in the monthly Mass as altar servers, gift bearers, lectors, and singers. Please follow the link below to sign up your child as a volunteer. Once your form submission is received, you will be contacted with more details.
