VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES & PARISH NEEDS
“Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!” Isaiah 6:8
MONEY COUNTERS: We are looking for volunteers to serve as Money Counters for weekly collections. Time commitment would be 2 Sundays each month. (3 Sundays in months with 5 weekends.) You will work on teams of 3 – 4 people. Collection will be counted on Sunday mornings immediately after the last mass. Ideally, we would like people from both Sat & Sun masses to volunteer. On weeks when a Holy Day takes place, that collection too will be counted on the following Sunday. A few people have already expressed an interest. If you can’t commit to a regular schedule but would be willing to serve as a substitute occasionally, you are needed too. If you like working with numbers and feel you can contribute to this valuable service, contact Mary at or call the Parish Center, leave your name & phone # and someone will return your call!
MUSICIANS NEEDED: St Matthews Music Ministry is looking for more singers, cantors, guitarists, keyboardists, string players, & wind instrument players for weekend masses. Contact Jill Kilzer Director of music and Liturgy .
GREETERS: St. Matthews seeks additional “Greeters”, for both Sat. & Sun. masses, to extend a warm welcome to those arriving for Mass. Your friendly smile and enthusiasm for the Church of St. Matthew parish are all that’s needed. To help, contact: , or the parish office.
CHRISTMAS DECORATING: Mark your calendars!! Decorating the Sanctuary for the Christmas season will take place Dec. 19th immediately after the 10:15am mass. The more volunteers we have, the sooner we will complete the decorating. If you attend Sat. mass, consider returning on Sunday to help decorate. Statues, and possibly Christmas trees, need to be carried up from the chapel. We would appreciate any help possible from young people in Faith Formation! With enough people, the job can be completed in about 1 hour.
