VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR ALTAR CARE Keeping the votive and altar candles filled, plants watered, and altar and vestibule areas dusted do not "just happen." It takes a group of dedicated men and women who volunteer to assist with this ministry, taking their turn a few times a year. Teams work, usually on Friday morning, to be sure things are ready for the weekend masses. This is NOT a cleaning/sanitizing ministry, but instead, one that keeps things dusted and in good order in the sacristy, vestibule and the main altar area. If you would be able to share about an hour of your time around 5 times throughout the year, please contact Lee and Cindy Evers (574-674-5345) or email them at email@example.com. "Serve the Lord with gladness!!" Thanks.
