GRASS MOWING: We are looking for volunteers to take care of the grass mowing on the parish campus. This would entail the boulevards surrounding the church, parish center and school. Also, the grassy areas around the parish center and along the Humboldt side of the school. Does not include the Guadalapana property. Normally the grass only needs to be mowed once a week. If we have more than 1 volunteer, they can alternate weeks. If interested in helping your parish in this way, contact Mary at . Or you can call the Parish Center and leave your contact information.
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
