Adult chaperones help the James GANG (high school youth group), the junior high youth group and other youth ministry groups by chaperoning at special events, including service events (Chili Cook-off, Christmas caroling, Parents’ Night Out, etc.), fun events (Progressive Dinner, lock-ins, movie nights, etc.), and spiritual events (retreats, National Catholic Youth Conference, etc.). Chaperones must be over 21. Safe Environment Training required.
Help Our Parish Excel is a SCRIP program wherein gift cards / certificates are purchased by the parish at various discounts from vendors and resold to parishioners at full face value. This program benefits both the parish and its educational programs and costs parishioners nothing extra. In addition, a certain portion of the profit from a sale can be designated toward school tuition. We are always in need of volunteers to sell H.O.P.E. certificates at the weekend Masses. Call now to volunteer.
You must have been registered in the parish for one year prior to becoming a money counter. Each week, volunteers count and deposit the offertory collection received at weekend Masses. The counters constitute the first step in the record-keeping system used by the parish to track donations in order to provide contribution statements for income tax purposes. Volunteers are assigned to one of four crews. Each crew then counts once a month.
Volunteers help the parish office during regular (daytime) office hours with a variety of tasks, from answering phones to helping with mailings. This work is on an “as needed” basis.
Youth Ministry occasionally needs clerical support that may include mailings (newsletters or permission forms), filing, copying, and other clerical jobs. Adults and teens are welcome.
