Bring your gifts to Mass Nov 29 & 30. Take them to the altar during the offertory song. We could also use help after Mass to bring the gifts and be a helper in SAC 315. Thank you for helping people "believe" in the generosity of others.
Magi Ministry is needing your help with this year's activities. Sign up after each Mass this weekend for the various dates. The ornaments will also be on the trees beginning 11/15. Help us help others believe in the generosity of others.

Thank you to all the Greeters and Ushers who helped with the Christmas Masses! You made the liturgies more joyful. Have a blessed Christmas season!
Christmas Greeters Needed for all Christmas Masses. The greeters plan be at ALL Christmas Masses next week and we are asking for assistance. We want to joyously welcome all who will be attending and make them feel at home here but since we are a newly reformed ministry we may not have enough volunteers at all Masses. We would need folks who can be here 45 minutes to an hour before every Mass and on Christmas Eve 45 minutes before the Christmas programs to welcome and help direct parishioners to the overflow Masses. We will also need help after every Mass for about 10 minutes to help the ushers with a special task. There will be a volunteer there before every Christmas Mass to coordinate. There are sign up sheets and a handout with directions for each Christmas Mass at the info booth in the Narthex after Masses this weekend. Or email email@example.com or call 214-801-5179 Thank you and have a Blessed Christmas.
Building a Welcoming Community – Volunteers Needed!
The Greeters/Welcome Ministry is working to build a community of welcome. We have begun with a few doors opening before Mass and information available after Mass. Thank you to all who have signed up to be a part of this ministry. The goal for our ministry is to have all the doors opened, all the visitors and new parishioners greeted and provide information for all parishioners and that will take more volunteers.
Currently we have the most volunteers at the 10am Mass. We need more volunteers at the other Masses just to cover the few doors and the information booth. Please - this is not a huge commitment, it consists of 20-30 minutes before Mass or 20-30 minutes after Mass and if we get enough volunteers it will only be once a month. Of course, if you want to volunteer every week we would be glad to have you.
For all the current volunteers, I have sent out schedules and Mass lists and instructions via email. If you have not received an email please call me or email me. Give me a call or email me at 214-801-5179 , firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com . Thank you.
