St. Paul teaches that administration is a gift of the Holy Spirit (I Cor. 12:28). As all his gifts, the Holy Spirit gives the gift of administration to equip us for the work of ministry and to build up the body of Christ (see Eph. 4:12). Assisting with the many administrative tasks of the parish, then, is to build up Notre Dame Parish in unity and in the service we render to the Lord and one another.
Some administrative tasks include, but are not limited to:
- MAILING, BULLETIN STUFFERS, AND FOLDERS — Help with stuffing envelopes for mailings, stuffing bulletins when needed, and other stuffing, addressing, and folding projects. Liturgy Mass aids are folded weekly. Friday mornings and/or notification will be sent out to the volunteers as needed.
- OFFICE RECEPTIONISTS — Answer the telephone and door when the permanent receptionist is called to other duties. There may be additional office functions if the volunteer feels comfortable with them. Volunteers can sign up for regular days and times or respond as individual needs occur. Male and female receptionists welcome.
- PHOTOGRAPHERS — Attend parish events and take pictures to be used on the parish’s social media, including the bulletin, and for historical purposes. Volunteers are called as needed.
- OFFERTORY COUNTERS — Count and prepare the weekend offertory collection for deposit. Volunteers meet on Monday mornings from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. (Tuesdays when Monday is a federal holiday).
