Engage in Parish Group Activities
As the primary contact for Parish Group Leaders, I facilitate development of fellowship and outreach ideas during our quarterly Night of Unity planning meetings. My background in event planning, fundraising and outreach are put into play as we flesh out details for logistics, legal and insurance requirements, etc. At our meetings we encourage collaboration between our group leaders to best serve our parish community.
Support Parish-wide Events and Outreach
A few parish traditions such as ThanksGifting and our Annual Parish Mission require a large number of volunteers once a year. Committees are typically formed to steer the 2-3 month planning process before this type of events. These events and outreach have an “all hands-on deck” approach as they incorporate the involvement of Parish Social Groups, parishioners, outside organizations, and more.
Help us host Special Events for the Diocese of Phoenix or Others
Occasionally the Diocese of Phoenix or another organization will offer our parish the opportunity to host a one-time, unique engagement opportunity. In 2022 our parish needed volunteers to organize input and write a report for Pope Francis’ worldwide Synod. In recent months we have hosted Father John Nahrgang, Diocese of Phoenix, as he provided presentations on the Miraculous Medals and Our Lady of Guadalupe. In both cases our volunteers helped with the distribution of Medals and Blessed Images of Our Lady. A teen event focused on chastity, Purified, is another example of a special event where assistance was needed for one night in order to ensure that the 200+ individuals and families visited our campus safely and efficiently.
Welcome New Parishioners
We have a system in place to introduce our parish to new members that is led mostly by staff. We need volunteers to meet with new parishioners one-on-one to suggest involvement in activities/ministries and establish a strong parish connection.
Submit any new ideas you would like to lead/pursue
Have a new idea? Have you heard about parish activities or groups at other churches that you would like to bring to our parish? Please let me know if you, someone you know, or your group might be able to help. Ideas currently in need of leadership:
Empty Nesters - Organizing parents whose children have left the "nest" and who may now have time to be involved in service to our parish.
