If you participate in Sunday Masses through Zoom, please participate by leading the prayer of Spiritual Communion. You sign up for two to three Sundays through the year. When it is your turn, you will read the Spiritual Communion to everyone on Zoom. You do not need to host or moderate the Zoom Mass. All you do is unmute yourself and read the prayer. You choose the Sundays that work best for you. To volunteer, email Monique at [email protected] and include your name, phone number, and two to three Sundays to read the prayer.


The Hospitality Ministers are the friendly people who greet and seat you for Mass. You already come to church, so why not come early and volunteer to serve at one Sunday a month?
