St. Zita Society: Church Cleaning Crew
We are a ministry that works to support the rectory staff at St. John's. Volunteering about six hours monthly, we provide office assistance at the Rectory/Parish Office with duties such as answering and redirecting phone calls, connecting people with the appropriate church offices, personnel or the many ministries and activities happening at St. John's. For anyone who is interested in learning what really happens inside a rectory, enjoys interacting with parish workers, parishioners and especially our priests here at St. John's— this is an awesome ministry to be involved in. After an early retirement, I was looking for a way to still feel productive, but not take on the full responsibility of even part-time work. As a member of the St Genesius Guild, I am able to contribute my time and talent in an office environment in ways that are simple, social and fun- as we work together to support our priests, each other and our community.
Church Cleaners Wanted
Do you like to clean? Love things neat? Can’t stand things out of place? Want everyone to shine and look good? We do too! We are looking for parishioners who would be willing to assist with a weekly cleaning of the church building which would include light mopping, sweeping, window cleaning and checking on hymnals and the like in the pews. The cleaning will ideally take place on Thursday or Friday afternoons. We are looking for individuals, couples, friends or even strangers to form cleaning teams so each group would work one or two days a month. If interested—or know someone who should be interested - contact Fr. John at 631.878.0009 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. St. Zita felt like she could not possibly wash one more window or dust one more piece of furniture, she imagined she was doing her work for God and suddenly the housework wans’t so boring anymore. Pray to St. Zita for the energy and patience to help with chores.
