PRAYER LINE: We are seeking a volunteer to monitor the Parish Prayer Line. In this role, your phone number would be published, without your name, in the parish bulletin under Prayer Line. People will call, asking to have the names of people in need of prayers placed on the Prayer Line. You will then call volunteers who have already offered their time to pray for those requests. Having an answering system will be helpful. If willing to volunteer, please contact Mary Leibl – or the parish office.
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.
FUNERAL LUNCHEONS: To Bury the Dead is one of the Corporal Works of Mercy. Helping to serve luncheons, to family and friends of the deceased, after a funeral is part of that Corporal Work of Mercy. A team of volunteers gather after each funeral to serve lunch to those attending the funeral. This group of parishioners could use more volunteers to help set up, serve food, and clean up after the luncheon. Would you be able to offer some time to help in this needed ministry? If so, please contact Mary at or call the Parish Office and leave your name and phone #.
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.
If you feel you can devote some time during the day to pray for those in need, please call Mary at .
