Make a Joyful Noise Unto the Lord. -Psalm 98:4
Do you like to sing?
Are you a young parishioner of St. Bartholomew?
Are you in grades 3-6?
If you answered "yes", then this may be a wonderful opportunity for you to participate in this parish ministry. The Joyful Sound Children's Choir is an active ministry in our parish, and it's a great way for children to serve and also get to know other children in the parish who have the same interest. Rehearsals are held on Monday afternoons, 3:45-4:45pm in the Music Room. The choir sings on the first Sunday of each month at the 10:30am Mass, as well as at other special times during the year. Please consider offering your time and talent to this ministry.

 Can you help?

Are you able to lead or assist in teaching a religious education class?

We are looking for catechists to lead the classes and assist the classes.  Plans are available to make the task as easy as possible. Catechists are needed at all grade levels each year. 

Are you a Special Education Teacher? 

We are looking for Special Education Teachers to assist us in our Children's Liturgy of the Word program for pre-school children to assist us with working with children with developmental disabilities on Sunday mornings during the 10:30 am Mass. 

 

Please contact the Office of Religious Education at 908-322-2359 if you can help us from October to May 2017.
