FAITH FORMATION programs NEED YOUR HELP:

During the 2016-17 school year, two of our catechists passed away:  Kathy Lozano (RCIA Catechist) and Edwin Tangalao (Tuesday Post Communion Catechist) – they will be greatly missed as they were both very devoted and spiritual catechists.  We also had a few catechists that moved away or need to step down from ministry due to health problems.  Please pray and discern if YOU have a calling to be a volunteer parish catechetical leader for St. Augustine Church.  We have a large program that serves children, teens and adults who are becoming formed in our faith.  We need dedicated volunteers who are willing to give of their time and talent to share their faith with those coming to our parish seeking initiation into the Catholic faith.  If you feel this call from God, please contact Terri Palmer, Director of Faith Formation (310) 838-2477, ext. 209 or email her at tannepalmer@aol.com.  Terri will be available after all the morning masses on Sundays throughout the month of August.  Terri will provide training and support to ensure that you are well prepared to share your faith with the students in our Sacramental Preparation classes, RCIA-Children and Teens, Confirmation and RCIA (for Adults) programs.

 

Summer Blessings, Terri A. Palmer, Director of Faith Formation/St. Augustine Church
