Projection Operators – for weekend and funeral masses.  You may “shadow” an operator during a mass at any time to see how “do-able” it is!  Please contact Jo Ann McVeigh at ext 129 or jmcveighsta@live.com.
Homebound Ministry:  Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion bring the gift of Eucharist to Trinity Medical Center, six area nursing homes and to the homebound.  Those visiting the hospital go in teams. Contact Betty West at ext 116 or bettywest@stanpr.org.
Receptionists:  Volunteer receptionists needed to serve at the front desk in our parish office, M-F.  Morning “shift” is 8:30 to noon, afternoon “shift” is 12:30 – 4pm.  Responsibilities limited to welcoming those who enter our doors and directing them to the proper person, meeting room, etc. and answering the phone.  We have several wonderful volunteers who commit usually for one morning or afternoon per week.  Substitutes are available for vacations, etc.
 Emergency Maintenance Team:  Our maintenance dept. needs volunteers willing to come and help prepare the parish grounds in the event of a hurricane.  Contact Tom Kelly at 372-8600 or mmpt11@aol.com.

We are in need of volunteers to staff the Cold Night Shelter. Please join our team which rotates with other area churches to provide a warm bed and hot meal for the homeless when temperatures reach below 34 degrees.  Shifts are generally 2-3 hours in length.

The shelter takes place at Joining Hands Mission, a Methodist Mission Church on US 19 in Holiday.  If you are unable to serve a shift but would like to provide a hot meal, that is needed as well.  Please contact Mary Miller in the parish office if interested.


Volunteers are needed to staff our gift shop before and after weekend masses.

Contact the parish office for more info.


One Community Now (Stand Down, Hunger Walk) is working hard to transform the community of Holiday Lake Estates, largely in poverty, from the ground up and much progress has been made.  Your help for their Christmas event would be greatly appreciated.
