Environment

Help to make and keep our worship space prayerful & beautiful.

While we enjoy the Easter Season decorations, we are in need of helpers to tend to the church’s environment and art beyond Pentecost.

The parish budgets for flowers, but needs the creativity of those who can help to make our worship space both prayerful and beautiful.

Please contact the parish office at 708-447-3108 to learn more about this time and talent stewardship opportunity.

 

Liturgical Ministers (Readers & Eucharistic Ministers)

While volunteers for liturgical ministers are always welcome, we are especially in need of Readers at the 8:00am Mass and additional Communion Ministers at all Masses, but especially at the 8:00am Mass. Call Arlene Houda at 708.442.9268 or contact the parish office for training and scheduling concerns.

Those who are fully initiated (Baptism, Eucharist, & Confirmation) can be a Reader.
