WE ARE CURRENTLY SEEKING VOLUNTEERS FOR SEVERAL COMMITTEES; both administrative and events. If you are interested in volunteering for any of the following, please contact Kandi Kukas at kjkukas@gmail.com  

 

Publicity Committee - this committee would publicize not just social activities but all the good works done through the Parish. Great things are done throughout our community, but unless they are publicized through all different media (cable, newspapers, Facebook, website, bulletin inserts and weekly alter announcements, email, Twitter) not everyone knows what is taking place. 4 volunteers for this work out well.

 

Welcoming Committee -these volunteers would assist with coffee and donuts after mass, reach out to new families and parishioners joining the parish, and welcome people as they come into Mass each week. The more volunteers on this committee the better!

 

Hospitality Committee – This group would help cook, and set up for various get-togethers / meetings both in the rectory meeting room and in the hall. If you love to cook, bake and set a beautiful table, this could be your ministry!

         

All are welcome to participate and volunteer!! Thank you   

 

IF YOU ARE HAVE ANY OTHER IDEAS FOR EVENTS YOU ARE INTERESTED IN DEVELOPING, PLEASE CONTACT ME! WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR NEW EXCITING ACTIVITIES FOR THE PARISH!

 

Thanks, Kandi
