- We desire to continue having public Masses on the weekends, and we would like to resume public Masses on Wednesdays and on First Saturdays. To make that possible, we need several volunteers to ensure that St. Mary’s is safe, set-up and sanitized for our parishioners and guests. If you are comfortable attending Mass and find yourself in the low-risk category for Covid-19, please consider serving on one of the following teams!
- This is a quick and easy way to serve the parish! Great especially for families who want to serve together. Volunteers for the Sanitizing Team arrive 15 minutes before Mass to prepare the building and live stream, then stay 15 minutes after Mass to sanitize the pews and other high-contact areas of the church. This team helps us stay compliant with both Diocesan protocols and Health Department recommendations to reduce the spread of Covid-19 and ensure that we can continue to safely gather together as a community of faith and love.
- If interested in joining the sanitizing team contact Tara Kovacevich!
- Perfect for people with a heart for hospitality, service, and the ability to notice the needs of others. Volunteers for the Usher Team arrive 1 hour prior to the start of Mass to greet people, offer hand sanitizer and masks, show people to their pews, help with the line for Holy Communion, dismiss people after Mass, and notice/help with any particular needs of our parishioners and guests. Ushers are usually asked to serve every other week.
- If interested contact Aaron Tiry!
- As a service to our priests, we have a team of reverent and detail-oriented volunteers who set up and take down the altar before and after each Mass. Volunteers generally arrive about 30 minutes before Mass and stay 30 minutes after Mass, and a one-time individual training is required before volunteering in this position. Sacristan volunteers are also given a special reserved pew toward the front!
