Below are current needs for the parish. (For Liturgical Ministry Opportunities, please click here.)
Eucharistic Minister to the Sick and Homebound
This ministry is a very important ministry. You will bring the Eucharist to those who are unable to leave their homes, are in a nursing home, or are in the hospital, and unable to come to Mass. For the sick, the Eucharistic Minister is the representative of the Body of Christ and often the only connection to the parish community.
This ministry is an important one. You will help to educate the parish on the different stewardship opportunities, the people who serve in these opportunities, and help encourage people to join the different ministries in the parish. This committee meets once a month preferably during the day to determine where the parish needs the most education. They write the Did You Know columns in the bulletins.
Volunteers to help in the office
We need someone to come into the office from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm to answer the phones and doors, to file when needed, to generally help out with what is needed. This would be once a week or month depending on how many people sign up. We also need a list of volunteers that would be willing to come in on occasion to stuff envelopes and to help get parish mailings out.
There are many who are unable to attend Mass on weekends, or to other parish social events, due to the lack of public transportation or the ability to drive. You would be asked to provide transportation on a rotation basis, not necessarily as a regular routine.
Care of Altar Linens – see Linda Stricker
Volunteer on a monthly basis to launder and iron the purificators that are used for Masses.
Coffee and Rolls on Sunday morning – see Linda Stricker
