PRAYER LINE: We are looking for volunteers who are willing to pray for the intentions of those who leave messages on our Prayer Line. When a prayer request is called in, the moderator of the Prayer Line will call those “Prayer Volunteers”, inform them of the “Prayer Request” and those volunteers will take some time to pray for the person requesting prayers as well at the intention mentioned in the request.
Mass Response Ministry
St Matts needs a volunteer at the Sat. 4:15pm mass, to read the mass responses and prayers into a microphone for the pre-recorded masses. You would say the prayers and responses you always say, but into a microphone to share with online mass participants. You could do this ministry from your favorite chair in the congregation, using a portable microphone. Online viewers do not hear the congregation’s responses and prayers unless they are spoken into a microphone for recording.
Your assistance will help our online viewers to participate more completely in the masses.
FUNERAL MINISTRY: We are looking for 3 to 4 volunteers to form a 2nd team of Funeral Ministers. Included in the duties: Having church open to meet the Funeral Directors when they arrive at the church. Offer hospitality to families and guests. Be sure that everything needed for funeral service is in proper place. Help the Readers and Gift Bearers to feel comfortable in their roles. See to it that the church is returned to normal set-up after the funeral. Training will be provided. If you are interested in serving this important ministry, contact Mary at . or call the Parish Office.
