 October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and St. Angela’s is going to Rise Up!


On two Friday’s this month, October 13th and 20th, students can wear pink accessories if they bring in a $1 or more donation! Students can wear anything from hair bows to bracelets, socks to nail polish; anything that is appropriate and pink. All proceeds will go to the Cancer Research Collaboration.


We will also be putting together Care Bags for cancer patients filled with goodies. We ask that all students bring in an item specific to their grade level by October 20th. Here’s what we are asking classes to bring in:


  • TK/Kinder: Chapstick

Summerfest needs two parents to take on the role of Summerfest Volunteer Chairs (perk: this counts as your parent job!). There is already a parent handling the online sing-ups and email, so Summerfest is looking for two parents to share duties the weekend of the event, checking in and coordinating volunteer shifts. This job is a great way to meet school families and have a lot of fun!

Please contact Melinda Ganahl with any questions at .

Children’s Liturgy is coming back and the Church needs volunteers! Children’s Liturgy of the Word at the 9:30 AM Mass is a dismissal program for school aged children. The children are able to hear the readings from the Children’s Lectionary worded so that they can understand. They will leave Mass right before the first reading and return to Church after the Universal Prayers. This is a great opportunity for adults who wish to share their Catholic faith through the Sunday readings. 


Training is available for those who are interested! Contact Debbie Kistler at (714) 743-2978 for more information or stop by their table after 9:30 AM Mass on Welcome Back Sunday.
