To be a steward of service means that we gratefully name and nurture our gifts from God. We then offer them to our Church and to the world. With this in mind, we are called to reflect upon our personal calendars and consider how we can best use our time and our gifts.
Our Church and the Stewardship Committee offer unique opportunities to serve within our parish. In addition to your financial contribution, you can also signup to volunteer for these opportunities via our Stewardship Volunteer Sign Up.

Our Church Cleaners clean the Church to maintain a reverent and attractive environment. Several cleaning teams rotate cleaning during different weeks.
Funeral Dinner volunteers provide hospitality, table setting, and food service for funeral meals. You are able to reach out to families at the time of the death of a loved one.
As our seasons change, so does the need for maintenance on our buildings and land. Our maintenance needs include help with landscaping (maintaining flowers and shrubs and performing spring and fall yard cleaning), shoveling snow at parish entrances and sidewalks, caring for the Parish Buildings by dusting, vacuuming, carpet cleaning, window washing and general up-keep of the parish facilities, and general skilled maintenance tasks including carpentry, roofing & gutters, electrical, masonry, mechanical, painting, plumbing, welding, HVAC, plastering, and flooring.
Our Worship is enhanced by music. Skilled musicians play instruments, including voices, to lead the assembly in song. Good musical skills are required, but intermediate and beginning musicians are included at appropriate times so they will develop their musical and leadership skills. Musicians must know and practice the appointed songs for the liturgy which may require rehearsal during the week prior to liturgy. You are asked to arrive 15 minutes before liturgy.
On occasion, we need assistance in the Parish Office, New Evangelization Office, and School office. These tasks include, but are not limited to: Clerical duties including folding, stapling and collating; Entering data into a computer using various software; Taking photographs or videos at the various parish activities and functions; Calling parishioners for various parish functions; and/or answering the phones and taking messages when our Administrative Assistants are not available.
Through a phone tree, volunteers are asked to pray for specific people and intentions.
We need a number of Rosary Leaders to lead the Rosary before Mass in May, October, and other times upon request.
The School looks for volunteers throughout the school year to help serve lunches, read to children, test vision and hearing, and other student-centered activities.
