Are your little ones wiggleworms during mass? It is so wonderful seeing your beautiful families at Mass! Though it’s not always easy, thank you for making the effort to bring your young children. It is important that they are there. Help keep kids focused and calm, with a Mass Bag from the Gathering Area. Grab a bag on the way in. Mass Bags are complete with a book, coloring book, crayons, stickers and goldfish crackers! Please return at end of Mass so they can be restocked as needed. Enjoy!

Remember to RECYCLE! Give us your paper and cardboard. This includes: wrapping paper, catalogs, cards and packaging (paper) and boxes. Flatten all cardboard boxes before placing them in the bins. The funds we receive for recycling are used for our Youth Ministry programs.

Just a reminder, Divine Word will not hold the annual rummage sale this year. Please consider donating your items to the City Mission.
