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.
