Jim and I have been members of St. Cletus Parish for over 40 years and are now part of a new and necessary group of volunteers called “gushers,” meaning greeters/ushers. As a gusher you are helping fellow parishioners navigate the Covid/Safety regulations and requirements as they attend mass. It is a wonderful experience to help individuals and families participate in the mass and receive spiritual nourishment from God’s Word and the Eucharist after being locked out of His presence. Our volunteer experience is also one of community that is so needed in this time of isolation and doubt. Greeting everyone with smiling eyes is a great way to start a Sunday.
Volunteers are needed more than ever for each Mass and prayer opportunity. Help as a greeter, sacristan, usher, or clean up. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help out.
