Handmaiden Report January 2010

We currently have 13 active handmaidens that are on regular schedule for bread cutting and Communion and one girl in training for bread cutting. The schedule works best so nobody feels like they are doing too much or being left out. We’ve had to go over the duties with the younger girls and remind them of the importance of paying close attention to what they are doing while holding the Communion cloth. We considered eliminating the older girls from the schedule but we feel their experience and maturity is needed to guide the younger girls. We had a pizza outing in Frankfort with the altar servers last year but we were not able to get together in 2009 for any kind of activity. I hope to have some kind of outing this year. The bells are sounding better and better. We have used the Semantron this year too. Once at the picnic where I received some instruction from Bishop Job and during church we had a short lesson on how and why it is used. Looking forward to another year of girls and bells!
