The rectory office is staffed by volunteer receptionists Monday to Friday, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. The receptionists answer the door, take phone calls and messages, and assist the parish secretary with a variety of office tasks. Volunteers normally work a set day of the week and a time period of at least three hours.
Volunteers are also needed at certain times to prepare bulk mailings and other chores. Often these tasks can be scheduled to fit your schedule.
