We Spread His Word With a Servant’s Heart
Through outreach ministries, we witness to Christ and share his gospel with everyone we meet. We serve one another and especially the poor, believing that those who have less in life should have more in love–Jesus’ love and ours. We provide spiritual, educational, social, justice, and charitable events and activities in the parish and community that deepen one’s friendship with Jesus and equip individuals to serve one another within their families and communities.
There are a number of ways we give beyond our own parish community.
HOSPITALITY CORNER — Volunteers are needed to join parish staff members to help staff our new Hospitality Corner. Volunteers greet visitors, hand out parish information, take requests for information, help register parishioners for programs and events, etc. The desk will be open after all weekend Masses. Volunteers may sign up for a Mass once a month or as often as they like. Training provided. Contact Fr. Leopoldo at 303-935-3900 or email@example.com.
COFFEE AND DONUTS (and Orange Juice too)! — Coffee and Donuts Sunday is a ministry old but NEW again! Coffee and donuts will be served on the first Sunday of every month following the 7:00 and 9:00 a.m. Masses. Volunteers are needed to procure supplies, set up, serve, and clean up. Contact Bill at 719-237-3432 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
CHRIST IN THE CITY — Notre Dame partners with Christ in the City to provide lunches to the homeless in Civic Center Park on Wednesdays as assigned. Volunteers are needed to make and/or serve simple sandwich lunches. Contact Trish at 303-988-1854 for more information and to get involved.
SAINT VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY (SVDP) — SVDP is truly the “gospel-in-action,” seeking to meet the physical needs of the poor. Members gather twice a month for prayer and consultation regarding those they are helping. Two-by-two members make personal visits to those in need and aid in the requests for assistance. A wonderful ministry for married couples and single persons alike. Contact Larry at 303-349-1116 or email@example.com.
RESPECT LIFE AND SOCIAL JUSTICE MINISTRY — The Notre Dame Respect Life Ministry strives to cultivate a vibrant culture of life by upholding the dignity of every human person.
