Coffee and Donuts

We serve coffee and donuts after the 8:30 Mass each Sunday so parishioners and neighbors can meet and develop friendships.  There is no better feeling than when a parent comes over to you saying that their child loves Sunday mornings for their donut.  It is easy to get them to love the Church when they want to come.  Set up and clean-up is a snap.  Members serve one month at a time.  Come join us.

Garden Ministry

If you love fresh air, sunshine, and playing in the dirt, this ministry is for you!  The exercise is a great gift for your body and your soul.  Our mission is to care for the gardens at the church and rectory.  We have monthly garden parties on Saturday mornings during Spring, Summer and Fall.  If you prefer independent work, we offer that as well by assigning you a specific area to care for.  All hands are welcome, and this is great family fun!  Volunteers learn about the calendar of events through email and phone calls, so please provide email when signing up.

Handy Man Helpers

Because the parish does not employ maintenance personnel, we rely on volunteers to assist us in accomplishing certain tasks around the church.  Some of the jobs take very little time, just a little muscle.  This could be anything from hanging something on the walls, tightening screws, replacing the letters on the marquee, to light touch up work with a paint brush.  All materials needed are provided.

Library Helpers

Our library shelves are filled with donated books, videos and DVDs.  We need help in sorting, cataloging and shelving these donations.  We have a good start but as the donations continue to come in, we need assistance with the organization and labeling.  You can decide how much time you can give.  You can take home books to label and categorize.  Any help you can give is much appreciated.

Nursery

It is a special privilege and responsibility to care for the babies in our church family.  It is our goal to make the nursery a safe and inviting place for children 3 years old and under.  The nursery is open to allow parents and guardians to attend Mass.  This service is greatly appreciated.  The volunteer commitment is one service every other month.  The nursery is staffed with at least two volunteers at all times.  Persons desiring to work with children must complete a background check.  Also, a handbook is provided to you to aid you in becoming CPR certified.  Volunteers, ages 12 to 112, are needed. This is a great opportunity for you to share God’s love.

Welcoming Committee

St. Stephen the Martyr’s welcoming committee exists to help new members of our parish feel that they are an integral part of this faith community.  By establishing personal contact with new parish members, it is our desire to create for them a true “spiritual home” – a place where they are “…no longer strangers and sojourners, but fellow citizens…of the household of God.”  (Ephesians 3:19)
