Needed: Baptism Coordinators, Photographers, Seamstresses
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
– Mathew 28:19
We have a real need for people willing to help with our baptism celebrations on all levels.
Baptism is the initiation sacrament that welcomes all into the life of Christ. We have been blessed to have a team of people now led by Father Angelo who help with baptisms each month. It takes many hands to first prepare the families to accept the responsibility of baptism for their child, then to actually assist during the baptism Mass, from photography to creating the white garments that are such a beautiful symbol of baptism.
Our current team of six: Michelle Collins, Michelle Hansen, Karen Schneider, Mary Ann Smith, Yolanda Livingston and Candice Lyle, rotate through preparation and coordination. We have just two photographers: Clarisse Balistreri and Tracey Fraser. Amazingly, we have one parishioner, Guadalupe Garcia who has been making the white garments for well over 40 years.
If you have time to help during Mass or on the first Tuesday of the month for just two hours, or if you have a talent for photography or sewing, contact Katie Metzger, Director of Shared Ministries, at 408-997-1551 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
