The fifth and sixth graders were commissioned into their liturgical ministries during a special Mass on October 18.

Rev. Bob Stagg from the Church of the Presentation in Upper Saddle River presided over a special Mass at which students lived out their ministries by serving as lectors, singers, altar servers, and liturgical dancers. During the mass, Rev. Stagg anointed the hands of each child with oil.

The liturgical ministries program is directed by the Lower School religion coordinator and involves many teachers and other adults from outside the school who serve as mentors. Each student selects a liturgical ministry and participates in training workshops in the fall. After commissioning, the students continue to serve in their chosen ministry during liturgies and prayer services throughout the school year.

“As the children become involved in the process of building community through liturgy, we are preparing them to accept lay leadership as they mature in the Christian community, and grow in a deeper understanding of their ministry,” said Dr. Michele Dahl, Lower School religion coordinator.

The Lower School ministries include: altar servers, break bakers, decorations, drama, hospitality, lectors, liturgical dance, music, and sacristans. All of the ministries are guided by this year’s theme: "Plant Your Seed." The students prepared to be anointed into their ministries during a special day of workshops on October 1.

Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child is an independent Catholic school enrolling boys and girls in kindergarten through grade six; and young women only in grades seven through 12.  For more information about Oak Knoll, please visit www.oakknoll.org or call 908-522-8109.

Mr. Market is convinced the FAANGs are impervious to a sell-off. “Its different this time” is ringing loud and clear, but will the outcome really be that ...
