St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church

Volunteering

Activities and ministries are opportunities for parishioners to live out their baptismal covenant and be good stewards of what God has given to them. We want to invite all members to consider their talents and skills, calling them to meaningful service.

 

A Help Wanted column in each week's bulletin publicizes volunteer needs within and outside the parish. Some of the many ministries within the parish are Lectors, Altar Servers, Choir, Women's Altar Rosary Guild, Welcoming Committee, Office Volunteers, and Religious Education.

 

The balance between the gifts and talents of parishioners at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church and the desire to live according ones own promises made at Baptism is what energizes the ministries of the parish. Efforts to welcome new members are planned several times during the program year.

 

Now that you are here, what will you do?


You are invited to share your own gifts and talents that God has blessed you with.

 

You can use those gifts in the work of a community of faith that is eager to have your assistance. There are many needs to be filled within and beyond the parish. You have the means to meet those needs as a volunteer. You have skills, interests, expertise and life experience worth sharing.

 

Taking part in a ministry of service as a volunteer is an exciting way to answer our Lord's call to work in the vineyard.

 

Volunteering/serving in a ministry is a way to enrich your experience of church by sharing yourself with others. Volunteering is one of the ways to live out the Gospel.

How do I get started?


The best way to start is to learn about the many ministries within the parish. You can check out the Ministries page on this website and contact a particular ministry coordinator or you can call the parish office (770-443-0566) and request information on a particular ministry.
