Acolytes.  Every Sunday at 10 a.m. our priests, their assistants and the CHS choir enter the church to start our main service of the week. But did you ever notice they are led to the altar by our own young people?  These are our Acolytes, and now we have an opportunity for your students (grade 3 to 12) to join them. It’s a chance to serve this parish and God at the altar. Please contact Father Adam at

No homework required!  And you don’t have to have come before. Each week a very short passage is read and then becomes the topic for open conversation.  Father Adam facilitates and provides occasional background material to heighten the discussion.  Perhaps it’s a little like group “lectio divina.”  Join the circle; we’d love to have you with us.
