Help Needed & Retirement Celebration 9/19
As we cautiously attempt to recover from the pandemic, the needs of the parish community are many. Seeing more and more of you at Mass is a very positive sign that some of you are ready to re-engage in the life of the community through various volunteer ministries and activities. With that in mind, I offer some options for you to consider.
we are looking for parish children ages 10 to 18 who would be willing to assist at Mass on the weekend. Contact Fr. John if interested. (Training required.)
we are in need of men or women 16 years or older, willing to take up the collection at a regularly assigned Mass so that we have an organized group for this ministry. Please submit your name to the parish office with the Mass time that works for you.
for both distribution of communion at Mass and at our three nursing facilities that we service monthly, as well as communion to our homebound. Please contact Roger Pisani if interested. (Training is required.)
Garden Angels –
are those willing to spend an hour or two weekly weeding and caring for one of the many gardens that surround the parish. Contact Fr. Joe for times and dates when you are available.
the creation of a committee of adults willing to offer their services in both planning and implementing refreshments at our parish events and sharing in this charism that makes us uniquely Augustinian. Contact Fr. Joe if interested.
Parish Choir & Musicians —
all ages are invited to join our parish music ministry. Please contact Roger Pisani if interested.
These are just a few of the immediate needs that would help us in our recovery after months of confinement due to COVID-19. Sharing your time and talent with the community is how we respond to our call to stewardship.
