RE  Registrations

	June 1 is almost here.  If you want to register at the 
discounted fee, get those forms in to the office today, 
postmarked before June 1.  FYI - if you have a preschool or 
kindergarten child you would like to see in the program next 
fall, get your registration in today.  The 3:15 Kindergarten 
session is already at capacity.  However, there is space at the 
5:15 Kindergarten session.  These classes always fill up quickly 
and enrollment is limited at those grade levels. 

Catechists Needed

	Before school is out for the summer break, please consider 
helping us as a catechist next fall.  We thank those who have 
responded to our plea.  However, we are still in need of 
catechists at various grade levels at various session times. 

	If you are a loving, welcoming, accepting, forgiving person 
of faith, you have the most important qualifications for being a 
catechist.  You don't have to be a theologian, just someone who 
can help our children understand how the Gospel can be applied to 
their lives.  Come share your Faith with the over 500 young 
people of our RE program. Call for more info.

If you have any questions or need more information, please call 
Mary Ann Woods at the REO, 832-8962.

family.  We hope that you will pray for these persons every day.

Letter of Appreciation 
to Molly Lindberg, Choir Director

	I wish to express my appreciation to you and the Mary Queen

greater fervor and devotion.  

	May the Lord continue to bless you and the choir s you 
continue to "sing joyful songs unto the Lord."
