PTO – Parishioners & Teachers Organization
“Bear one another’s burdens, and so you will fulfill the law of Christ.” – Galatians 6:2
At All Saints, PTO stands for Parishioner’s Teacher Organization. The ministry’s goal is to bridge the gap between our parish youth and the rest of the parish community. Working hand-in-hand with the Faith Formation classes, the PTO invites and encourages all members of the parish to share their faith and experiences with the children enrolled in the Faith Formation program.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE – Even if a parishioner does not have a child enrolled in classes, the PTO offers many opportunities to participate actively. Parishioners are welcome to come to classes and help instructors with lessons, share experiences, and work on special projects. Parishioners can also work with the students preparing the monthly children’s mass, help with children’s stewardship projects, and most important, bring new ideas to help children learn and grow in the Catholic faith. *Prior to spending time with the children, adults need to take the Virtus Course. The date of the course will be announced in the church bulletin.
