Opportunities to Serve
Nursery for Sunday 9:30 a.m. Mass
Holy Spirit offers a nursery which is open to all children between the ages of 1 and 5 during the 9:30 Mass. The nursery is held in the Pre-K room year round to provide a safe place for children to play while parents are able to worship in peace. The nursery requires a minimum of two trained volunteers each Sunday. To be able to provide this grace-filled service we are looking for both adults and teens who are willing to serve on a rotating schedule. Volunteers must comply with the screening requirements for the Diocese of San Jose. Community service hours are available for this opportunity.
Holy Spirit is launching a new ministry starting with the new school year in the fall of 2017. Under the guidance of Laura Smith, the chair of our usher ministry here at Holy Spirit, we are opening the usher ministry to any youth 5th grade and over who would like to do good works by joining our current ushers. A Holy Spirit usher welcomes parishioners and helps our Masses run smoothly by assisting with the communion lines, collection and other behind the scenes duties. The only requirements for joining this ministry is a willingness to serve, attendance at one the trainings and regular attendance at Mass. It is not a requirement, but we are hopeful that parents will be inspired to join their children in the usher ministry as well. This is a unique opportunity to serve our community together.
Training dates have already been scheduled for Sunday, September 17 from 1:00–2:00 p.m. or Monday, September 18 from 6:30–7:30 p.m. depending on which is more convenient for you. This training qualifies both youth and adults to serve as ushers. Youth ushers (only) will be able to earn one school service hour for each Mass at which they serve.
If you interested in either of these opportunities or any ministry, please contact Katie Metzger at email@example.com or 408-997-5115.
