PARISH RECEPTIONIST – ON CALL
We are looking for volunteers who would be willing to serve as “On-Call” Receptionists. Occasionally one of our regularly scheduled receptionists is unable to come into the office on their scheduled day. Would you be available to come in and take their place? If you enjoy helping others, please consider serving the parish through this position.
We are a Volunteer Parish!! The future of our parish depends on our dedicated volunteers.
THANK YOU to the 62 parishioners who attended our Public Mass last Sat. As we continue to film that mass for those who wish to attend the Sunday Mass online, we thank our celebrant Fr. Adrian who offers mass for us and through the words of his homily gives us strength & hope as we live through these trying days. To John who assists where needed and makes sure everyone & everything is where it needs to be. To our Pianist Jill and our newest Cantor Kathy who provided the beautiful music. To Jeanne & Mooreen who presented the readings. To our Eucharistic Ministers Dave & Tim. We thank our Sacristans Ginny & Mary. Thank you to our ushers Tim & Tom & Doorman Mike. We are all especially grateful to Alan!! He came forward last March and offered to film all our services. He then edits the production and puts it out on the web for all to view! He makes it possible for us to come together and worship as a parish, during an exceedingly difficult time. If you were not able to join the service as it happened, you can watch the mass on the st-matts.org. Website/Facebook page or on YouTube.
THANK YOU Over the years, rain and melting snow have damaged the ceiling in the front vestibule. The new roof has eliminated the leaking problem. Recently two parishioners came forward and volunteered to repair and paint that ceiling. Greg & Tim patched holes left from an old light fixture. They then sanded the ceiling, sprayed discolored area with Kilz and painted the entire ceiling. When Charley saw them working, he volunteered to be their “runner” so they would not have to keep getting off the ladder to get tools and supplies. He then helped clean up and vacuum the vestibule. When you enter the church, “look up” and see how these volunteers have made our entrance more welcoming!
Nearly 3 years ago our parish made the decision to become a Volunteer Parish. It has been through the generosity of our volunteers that we are able to exist. If you have ever considered other ways you felt you could volunteer, some way, other than what you have seen listed, please contact the Parish Center or .
