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 “Prayer Volunteers” to inform them of the “Prayer Request” and those volunteers will take some time to pray for the person requesting prayers, as well as the intention mentioned in the request. If you feel you can devote some time during the day to pray for those in need, please contact Mary at or call the Parish Center.
MASS RESPONSE MINISTRY
St. Matts needs volunteers 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 with the congregation. Online mass participants only hear the responses if they are said into a microphone. You could do this ministry from your favorite chair in the congregation using a portable mic. This mic can be clipped to your collar or lapel and be very inconspicuous! Your assistance will help our online viewers to participate more completely in the masses. We only need 1 Mass Response Minister each week but would like enough volunteers to share the ministry. Please contact the parish office or .
GREETERS: St. Matthews parish seeks additional “Greeters”, for Sun. masses. We welcome People who are able to extend a warm welcome to those arriving for Mass. Your friendly smile and enthusiasm for the Church of St. Matthew are all that is needed. To help, contact: , or the parish office.
