Ministries that need your help

We are looking for Doorkeepers and Welcomers. This involves arriving about 25 minutes before Mass begins in order to greet everyone on arrival with a smile and a hymn book/newsletter. They are responsible for taking the offertory collection, overseeing the offertory procession and ensuring monies are placed in a secure place after Mass. Our ministers of welcome should be familiar with the layout of the Church and be able to accompany late arrivals to vacant seats in the Church (This ensures the narthex is kept clear for safety reasons), know where the facilities (toilets and changing stations) are located and also aware of how to provide assistance when required e.g. location of first aid box. They also need to be aware of fire escape routes and ensure these are kept clear at all times. The biggest qualification for this role is that of a warm smile to greet regular and visitor alike; all other information will be provided. If you can help, either as an individual or couple, please let the parish office know.

We also need Cleaners. We have a dedicated group of cleaners who have vacuumed, dusted and swept our Churches for many years but numbers have dwindled and we are appealing for your help in ensuring our Churches are kept clean and tidy. The role involves vacuuming the Church, sanctuary (swept at Knighton) and narthex and dusting pews and statues. Those currently doing this ministry estimate it takes two people two hours per week to complete. All materials and equipment are provided and it can be done at any time during the week convenient to yourselves. Please note, toilets are not included in the cleaning responsibilities. If you can help, either as an individual, couple or family group, please let the parish office know.
