Office Volunteers

Sacred Heart Parish, located in the Sacred Heart Parish Center, regularly needs volunteers to assist with mailing projects, answering telephones, copying and compiling information packets, and other clerical/administrative duties. The time commitment is flexible. Grace, our Volunteer Coordinator, looks forward to adding your name to our pool of skilled office volunteers! Email gdonnelly@sacredheartcos.org.

Catechumenate Team and Sponsors for the RCIA

(Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)
Practicing Catholics are needed for both the catechumenate team and to act as sponsors for those who are in the process of becoming Catholic. A sponsor attends RCIA classes with the participant, assists with the various rites that mark progress, and serves as godparent for a participant who will be baptized. Team members and sponsors often find their own faith has been tremendously deepened and enriched by the process! Please contact Fr. Bob if you would be interested in helping with our RCIA program.

Sewing and Mending

Anyone who has the ability to sew is invited to volunteer for this ministry. Projects may include making Baptismal robes, banners for church celebrations or decorations for the holidays.

Sympathy Meal Ministry

The Sympathy Meal Ministry hosts a reception and offers a meal for family and friends of the deceased following a funeral Mass. Volunteers in this ministry are an integral part of our care and support for the bereaved.
