Ways To Serve

We Need YOU!
Get involved, meet others and help us grow!

 

Help at Mass

For questions and training information, contact Marilyn Moix, mdmoix@sjparish.org, 501-327-6568.

Must be VIRTUS Trained

 

Eucharistic Ministers

We need more Eucharistic Ministers to serve at Mass and to take communion to our homebound parishioners. 

 

Sacristans

While we are enjoying mass, a whole lot is going on behind the scenes to make it happen.  Sacristans arrive 1 hour before mass to open doors and prepare, perform several duties during mass, then stay 30-60 min. after mass to clean up & lock the church.

 

Ushers

We need more Ushers to help at Mass.

 

Audio/Visual

Our A/V team needs more people to help run the presentation equipment during mass.  If you are comfortable working a computer, please consider helping so they can have a break.  It's not difficult!!

Eucharistic Ministry to the Homebound

We need more Eucharistic Ministers.  Must be a trained Eucharistic Minister through the parish, then receive additional info on how to distribute Communion to our homebound parishioners in hospitals, nursing homes, or in their private home.  Visits are made weekly at your convenience; we normally have around 50 homebound parishioners. Contact Kathy Kordsmeier:  kkordsmeier@outlook.com or 501-269-1998.

 

Funeral Food Teams

Volunteers are needed to bring food for the family meal after a funeral.  Volunteers are placed on teams; each team prepares food for 2-3 funerals per year.  (No serving or help is involved; food items are dropped off at church the morning of the funeral.)  Contact:  Jacqueline Kordsmeier, jkordsmeier@sjse.org or 501-329-1818.

 

Visiting Ministry

Visit and spend time with our homebound parishioners who need some company, for socialization and to keep them connected to the parish.  Contact Beverly Grey, bevgray@yahoo.com.

 

Natural Family Planning (NFP) Teaching Couples

For several years, we have not had an NFP teaching couple, and our engaged couples often drive to Little Rock for training.  Contact Yolanda Beruman, yberuman@sjparish.org or 501-327-6568.

 

Annulment Advocates

We are in need of more Annulment Advocates, to assist divorcees through the process.  It is natural for someone who has been through an annulment to become an Annulment Advocate, although anyone is welcome to help out in this area.  Contact Yolanda Beruman, yberuman@sjparish.org or 501-327-6568.

 

Marriage Prep Sponsor Couples

We are in need of Sponsor Couples to serve as mentors for our Engaged Couples.  Sponsor Couple training is a simple 2-3 hour session, materials are provided, and you meet with Engaged Couples 4-5 times in your home.  Contact Yolanda Beruman, yberuman@sjparish.org or 501-327-6568.
