Ministry Sign-Up

Please prayerfully consider how your gifts might be used in this new year.

As in any community, it takes many people to ensure that all the programs and activities run smoothly. We are always in need of new people to help out with Religious Education. Duties may include teaching the little children, being a classroom helper, working with the youth group, or helping to organize activities. We always need more people to help out as Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, Sacristans, and Altar Servers. We also have a serious need for more volunteers in the Coffee and Donuts Ministry. We have already had to cancel this ministry at the 11:00 Mass, and the 5:30 Mass is not far behind!! If you can help in any of these capacities, or have any questions, please call the parish office at 466-4991. We would love to hear from you!
