Other Ministries

Yarn Donations Needed!!

Aurora Herrera would like to thank all the parishioners that have donated yarn to her in the past few years.  As Aurora continues to crochet slippers for the residents at our local nursing homes and for babies in the neo-natal centers, she is asking for donations of yarn.  Donations may be left at the parish office.

Application For Ministry And Volunteer Service

If you provide a service or ministry for our parish and have never filled out an application, please pick one up from the parish office, complete and return it.   This means if you do anything for the parish, i.e. Eucharistic minister, lector, choir members, maintainance for church and grounds, memorial luncheon volunteers, St. Vincent de Paul volunteers, prayer group organizers, etc.  If you are interested in joining a service or ministry, you should complete an application.  You cannot begin any service or ministry prior to an application being completed and if you wish to participate in a ministry or service that requires a background check, you cannot begin until the background check is completed which is a two month process.  The cost of the background check is paid for by the parish.
