“The Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve.” Mk 10:45
We invite you to complete the Volunteer Application below to start the process or visit us at the welcome desk after Mass. We would love to help you discern how God is calling you, and get you connected with the right ministry.
Jesus said “The Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve.”(Mk 10:45), and just as we are all called to be disciples – we are all called to service. We thank God for His gifts to us of time, talent and treasure, and encourage every member of our parish to use these gifts in praising God, and working in the service of our community of faith.
