A Parish is a Family...
When you think of our parish, do you think of family? We hope so. With that image in mind, please consider how you can participate in the life of our parish family. We have many opportunities for volunteers and have some new and existing ministries for which we need help. Would you pray about participating and consider helping?
Church Projection System - Need individuals to run our NEW computer and projection system as we begin to ramp up it's use. It would be helpful if you are somewhat familiar with a computer, but all training will be provided!
Parish Census - We began the process last Easter and we need to complete the process and compile the data. There are many different volunteer opportunities available for this ministry.
Coffee Hour - This ministry takes care of the set up and clean up of coffee hour after the 11:00 AM Mass. Food/Drinks are provided and a family or individual only needs to commit to a few Sundays through the year.
