ChildrensLiturgy RED
We asked, you answered and now we are moving to create and offer Children's Liturgy of the Word during 10:30 Sunday Mass. In order to do so, we need volunteers to lead the program on a rotating basis. Leaders will take the children at the beginning of Mass and then return them to the congregation after the homily. Children will learn about the weekly readings in an appropriate language for their understanding. Generally children ages 3-10 would participate, but younger children may also participate with an older sibling or a parent. 
 
All materials will be provided, as well as a quick training to make leaders comfortable. The more leader volunteers we have the fewer times they will need to serve - the thought is to create a rotating calendar with the group of volunteers. Leaders could be parents, grandparents, other adults or teens/youth. We will also have a Virtus trained adult present at all sessions, with hopes all leaders will become Virtus trained (a child and vulnerable adult online training program offered and mandated by the Archdiocese for volunteers working with the identified populations). 
 
Please consider if this is something you would like to do - it truly is a very rewarding ministry and another way that we as a parish family can minister to our youngest and to our parent population.

Outreach, Service & Social Justice Opportunities

🫃🏽Baby Shower Supporting Babies and Moms

Beginning on Mother’s Day weekend, 5/11 & 5/12, we will host a baby shower for Caring Families in Willimantic. This organization provides support to moms (many times young and unwed) who give birth to their child. Supporting these moms in their decision is another part of our calling to honor the preciousness of life. We ask that you take a bottle home, fill it with coins, cash or check and return it to the Birthright volunteer stationed after Masses on the weekend of June 2.

🍞Marlborough Food Bank 
Non-perishable food, personal care items and household cleaning supplies are now accepted weekly at any Mass. Bags may be placed to the right of the altar. If there is a specific need, we will mention it in the bulletin or check out the food bank directly at https://foodbankofmarlborough.wordpress.com.
 

St. John Fisher Parish Vision:

We are a beacon of God’s gracious and merciful love as we glorify His name through service to others; devotion to His teachings and His Son Jesus; and by maintaining a welcoming, accepting and embracing Catholic community of faith that judges none, embraces and protects the vulnerable, builds community of all ages and life stages and acts for the greater Glory of God.

St. John Fisher Parish Mission:

We provide an open, welcoming and active Catholic faith community that is inspired by the gifts of the Holy Spirit as we demonstrate our faith by (1) actively participating in Mass and the Sacraments, (2) by serving and ministering to others, (3) by exploring and sharing the Word and teachings of Jesus and (4) by openly embracing the various needs of our entire parish family and broader community in Christ.
