St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church - Naperville, IL

RAINBOWS Volunteers Needed

St. Thomas offers the RAINBOWS program and is in need of several adult facilitators for small groups of children. RAINBOWS training is available on line, and in addition, one must take the Protecting God’s Children workshop and have a background check.  Sessions are at St. Thomas the Apostle Church from 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. on Saturday mornings, beginning Saturday, September 7 with a leader meeting. Please consider signing up for this ministry, which needs your help to continue.

RAINBOWS for all Children is a peer support group for children (Kindergarten through 8th grade) who are grieving the loss of a loved one due to death, divorce, deployment, incarceration, a long term illness or another life-altering event. These sessions are intended to be a peer support group led by trained, compassionate, listening facilitators.  They are not to substitute for professional counseling. The program is free for all participants and we welcome all children.
