There are three parts to this ministry: Program Coordinator, Food Collector, Food Deliverer: One program coordinator at each weekend Mass—4:30pm Saturday and 8:00, 9:45 and 11:30am Masses on Sunday. This person is responsible for a team of people who take turns removing the food from the sanctuary after their scheduled Mass. Food Collectors are people willing to stay after Mass for a short time to take the food collected during their assigned Mass to the holding area in the rear of the church building. Food Deliverers are people willing to pick up all the food after the 11:30am Mass each weekend and deliver it to St. Paul of Tarsus or St. Matthias on Monday morning. With enough people, this is done on a rotating basis, once a month.
Time Commitment: For the program coordinator and the food collectors, this ministry is performed while you are at Mass. For food deliverers, approximately 1 hour once per month or less. This ministry is scheduled; you will be scheduled according to the preferences you provide.
Special Training/Skills Needed: None.
When to join: Children’s Food Offertory is scheduled every four months. It is best to sign up in August, December or March but new people are always welcome.
