Greetings St. John’s Community!
We have an ongoing need for regular cleaning of our beautiful church.
About three years ago, a new ministry was created at St. John’s, the “Altar and Rosary Society.” The mission is as follows:
“As parishioners of St. John the Baptist, we are dedicated to volunteering our time to both pray for our parish and offer our time to clean areas of the church, as a way of serving the Body of Christ and Christ Himself.”
We are in need of 5-6 parishioners who can commit 2 hours per month for a one-year commitment to help with cleaning the church, as well as praying for Fr. Carlson and the community of St. John the Baptist.
This is a beautiful and rewarding ministry, which can be done at any time that works in your schedule, so long as it is not during Mass times, funerals, etc. Those who have been a part of this ministry have found it to be a very peaceful and fruitful time of prayer and service.
Training will be provided for volunteers, detailing where cleaning supplies are located, specific cleaning tools to be used for sanctuary only, and cleaning methods.
Thank you for considering this ministry. Everyone’s time is precious and schedules are full. Give some time to prayerfully consider if God is calling you to participate in this ministry.
Contact the parish office with questions and to get involved!
