Following is a message from Rediscover organizers seeking volunteers for the event:
To all DREs, RE Coordinators, and anyone working in Youth or Children’s Ministry,
The exciting Archdiocesan-wide Rediscover: Catholic Celebration event will be taking place on October 3-4 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
This year features a truly awesome children’s K-6 program, based on the Gospel story of the walk on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35). Children will learn how the Scriptures foretold of Jesus, “beginning with Moses and all the prophets” as they learn key Bible stories of hope. We are providing lesson plans and materials for all teachers and assistants.
We are currently recruiting volunteers to assist the lead teachers in each K-6 multi-age classroom. The time commitment would be Saturday, October 4th, working either the morning shift, the afternoon shift, or both (3 ½ hour shifts) and two training sessions beforehand. All adult volunteers will need to have completed a VIRTUS training session, background check, and sign a code of conduct form. Click here for the volunteer registration form with additional details.
Please prayerfully consider whether God is calling you to this opportunity, and pass this request on to your catechists, helpers, and youth. Reply to one of the co-chairs listed below for more information. Thank you for your consideration!
