“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.”
William Shakespeare

The following are opportunities for you to share your gifts with St. Mary of the Hills.  Please prayerfully consider volunteering your time with one of these ministries:

Saturday Office Help
St. Mary’s parish office is looking for some smiling faces to answer phones as well as questions from parishioners one or two Saturday evenings a month from 4:00 PM-6:30 PM.  Training will be provided.

Funeral Luncheon Ministry
The Funeral Luncheon Ministry would like to once again start offering families the option of having a funeral lunch at St. Mary of the Hills with the food provided by the Ministry.  In order to do this, though, volunteers are needed for the following areas:  contact person, team leader, baker, food donator, helper.

Usher
Men and Women are needed for all Masses to help maintain order in and about the Church, aid in seating the congregation, collect the offerings, and direct communion lines.

Hostess for Newcomer’s Lunch
St. Mary’s will begin hosting, on a quarterly basis,  lunches for our new parishioners.  Someone who has the gift of hospitality is needed to oversee the lunch.  Duties would involve taking registrations, ordering food, setting up and cleaning up.  Lunches will take place on Sunday afternoons from 12:00 PM-2:00 PM.  This would be perfect for a parent and child or a husband and wife to do together.

Stewardship Commission Member
As a Stewardship Commission member, you will help create a culture of Stewardship that supports the spiritual and material well-being of our parish by:  Personally inviting parishioners to become involved in our vibrant parish, providing opportunities to discern one’s gifts and talents from God for the service of others, and helping to Identify opportunities for parishioners to volunteer and accept responsibility for the subsistence of our parish and those we serve.  Our objective is to create good Stewards of God’s gifts in our parish community.

St. Mary’s Skills Inventory gives you the opportunity to tell us what skills you have and would be willing to share on an as needed basis.  When a need for that skill arises, you will be invited to share it with your faith community.  There are no long term commitments and you are never obligated to say yes.  It is an invitation that gives you the opportunity to get involved in your parish, to meet other parishioners, and to learn a little bit more about St. Mary of the Hills.  Please click on “Skills Inventory” to fill out electronically.  Hard copies can be found in the church narthex and can be dropped off in the parish office once filled out.

Parish Census
Thank you  to everyone who has responded to the parish census mailing.  If you have not responded yet, please do so as soon as possible.  If you did not receive an email or letter from us, please go to our website, www.smoth.org, click on “parish census”, fill out the census form, and return to the parish office.  Thank you for helping us keep our records as current as possible!

If you currently are a volunteer in one of our ministries and your email has changed, please let me know.
