Opportunities to Serve
Looking for ways you can help out? Whatever your talents, abilities, skills and preferences, you can find something here! Check it out!
All kinds of helpers are needed in this ministry. Catechists, folks who can stuff envelopes, staple and collate, help with registrations, you name it. Contact each program coordinator for specific needs or if you have any questions.
We welcome anyone interested in knitting or learning to knit to join us! If you bring your size 13 needles we will provide the yarn. The finished shawls are blessed at the 8:30 a.m. Mass the 1st Saturday of each month and are gifted to those in need. If you know someone who needs a shawl or if you want to find out more about joining the knitters, call Winnie Hughes at 507-339-9160 or Carol McHugo at 507-334-3778.
The Children's Liturgy of the Word program is coordinated by adults, but middle and high school youth are encouraged to volunteer. The time you spend helping with the program can count for volunteer hours required through school or church. Young children will go into a separate area of the church during the 10:00 a.m. Sunday Mass, most Sundays during the school year. There they will learn how to make the sign of the cross, genuflect, use Holy Water, talk about the Gospel, sing songs and do crafts. They will return to the worship area during the offertory.
We are looking for men and women who can volunteer their time at our front desk. This important volunteer position requires answering phones, selling scrip, scheduling Mass intentions, selling items from our gift shop and answering questions from visitors. Training is provided.
Regular shifts are weekday mornings, 8 - 12:15, and Monday-Thursday afternoons 12:15 - 4:30. We ask our front desk ministers to commit to one regular shift per week. We are also in need of subs if you only want to help out occasionally.

Mission Quilting sews quilts for St. Vincent de Paul and other missions serving the poor. We are always seeking volunteers. Sewing experience is not necessary. Volunteer opportunities include: Cutting fabric, designing and laying out of the quilts, sewing the blocks together to form quilt tops, tying the quilts off with yarn, and finishing the quilts with binding. You can even volunteer from home! For more information, contact Connie Donkers at 507-334-8139.
