Opportunities To Serve
“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” – 1 Peter 4:10
This is the season of giving and no better time to share our gifts. Holy Spirit parishioners are unparalleled in their ability and willingness to share with the most needy of our community, but today we turn our focus inward. Please review the list of opportunities to serve within our church community to find the perfect place for you to share your gifts.
Kitchen Angels: This well named team of angels helps grieving families offer refreshment to those in attendance at their loved one’s funeral. These compassionate people prepare for, serve and clean up after funeral receptions, all while being the face of Holy Spirit Church .
Counters: Join a team of parishioners who diligently count the weekly offering once a month under the guidance of Monica Bayless .
Ambassadors: A team of people who attend Masses and community events to connect with new parishioners or future parishioners through conversation. This team helps to make Holy Spirit a welcoming parish to all.
Substitute Catechists: Join the team of people who bring our faith to our youngest parishioners. Classes are held on Sunday morning, Monday evening and Tuesday afternoon. Children’s Liturgy of the Word is offered at the 5:00 p.m. and 9:30 a.m. Mass each weekend. No experience needed, just a willing heart. Minimal time required as we are fully staffed and looking for substitutes only at this time.
Parish Office Administrative Technical Support: Knowledge of Power Point, Excel and Word will be invaluable in helping to process information for our parish.
Liturgical Ministers: Altar Linens, Bread Bakers, Mass Coordinators, Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, and Ushers make our beautiful liturgies possible. New ministers are always welcomed as it takes over 100 ministers every week to offer Mass to all of our many parishioners for both weekend and daily Mass.
If you are willing to share your gifts in any of these ways, please contact Katie Metzger, Director of Shared Ministries at email@example.com or 408-997-5115.
