Time and Talent Fair.
It's time to get involved, to provide service to others in need, and to meet follow parishioners. If you are unable to attend the weekend fair, but are interested in volunteering any of the ministries at St. Louise,go to the "Get Involved" page and fill in the Get Involved Form. Thank you for sharing your time and talent and answering God's call to serve.
This spring the following ministries are being highlighted:
Faith Formation - two groups are seeking new members.
Library - contact Dawn McIntosh firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers assisting in the library should be able to work least 30 minutes per month in the library following Mass. We try to accommodate your preferred Mass time. There is a monthly committee meeting/work party in the library from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on the second Saturday of each month. We are always looking for parishioners who would like to help with the Library, regardless of prior training.
St. Vincent de Paul - Contact Gina Haines SVDP_office@stlouise.org. St. Vincent de Paul is a well-known organization at St. Louise supporting the material and spiritual needs for those seeking help from our community. We reach out by assisting those in crises, such as threat of eviction, utility shut-offs, hunger, and connection to other human and health services. We also try to provide a human connection to those who just need someone to listen and help them in a non-judgmental way to solve their problems.
We are looking for people willing to reach out with either home visits, intake support or help with our food bank. We need more people to be the face of St. Louise assisting those in need. The work is very rewarding. The familiar words, "there but for the grace of God, go I" helps us discern how we can help.
Ushers - Contact Pat Cline email@example.com. Ushers are the men, women and even children that help make Mass an enjoyable experience. Families are welcome to serve together. Following completion of an orientation and training session, ushers are put on a monthly schedule based on their Mass preference. Ushers serve on a team of four or more, so you serve every third week.
Training is provided by each ministry, and most have few criteria to join.
